This year, I will be participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. 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. Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event have helped to:

Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver eleven new treatments in a decade
Launched over 80 new clinical trials

As most of you know, my mom passed away from multiple myeloma in 1997. That's the year before this foundation was even started. Had it been around then, she may have been able to benefit from their ongoing research, clinical trials, and support.
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) was established in 1998 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by twin sisters Karen Andrews and Kathy Giusti, soon after Kathy's diagnosis with multiple myeloma.

As the world's number-one private funder of multiple myeloma research, the MMRF has raised over $330 million since its inception and directs 90% of total budget to research and related programming.

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 amazing news, considering none of this was possible when my mom was diagnosed.
THIS IS SCIENCE, NOT FICTION. The MMRF needs your support. History is being made, so I invite you to join us.

Thank You!
