In 2010, my father, Stephen Connor, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Nearly 4 years later, he would lose his battle with cancer, but not before showing all of his family and friends the will and determination he had to fight back, give back, and help others touched by MM by participating in the annual MMRF Race for Research.

You can learn more about my father's story at stephen-connor.com.

I will be participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. My family and I have committed to raising awareness and funds to accelerate finding a cure for multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable. I am beyond grateful for YOUR amazing contributions, which have helped raise more than $10,000 in the past 4 years!!! Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event have helped to:

Create the largest genomic data set in any cancer
Advance the MMRF Precision Medicine Model
Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
Launch over 70 new clinical trials

Now is the time for us to continue these life-changing initiatives while developing new breakthroughs in myeloma research!

The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. Together with its partners, the MMRF has created the only end-to-end solution in precision medicine and the single largest genomic dataset in all cancers. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts. Since its inception, the organization has raised over $400 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs. To learn more, visit themmrf.org.

Please support my participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Your donation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families! The MMRF is bringing treatments to trial 60 percent faster than the industry standard and tripling life expectancy. THIS IS SCIENCE, NOT FICTION. The MMRF needs your support. History is being made, so we invite you to join us.

Thank You!
