Kostick Kicking Cancer!

Join Me! The MMRF is removing obstacles faster and extending lives. But we NEED your help.

We will be participating in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K walk/run again this year. This will be the 4th year we will join forces with many other teams and individuals to raise money of this incurable cancer. Andy was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in June 2015. It is hard to believe that his diagnoses was almost 4 years ago. He has undergone many treatments over this time. For the last year and a half Andy has been on Dara which helped him to live an active life filled with the joys we all sometimes take for granite. At the end of February he will be taking part in a clinical trial called BiTEs. It has real promise in the initial stages and we have hope that it will help Andy in his battle against this cancer.

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 in the past have helped to:

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

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. The MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for 16 years. To learn more, visit themmrf.org.

Please support my participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Your donation and participation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank You!
