For the third year in a row, our family and friends will be participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run.

This disease hit close to home in 2017. At the age of 41, my husband Evan was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He spent most of 2017 in treatment and has been an absolute WARRIOR. Because of the amazing advancements in research and treatments, like those funded by the MMRF, we are ecstatic to say that Evan is now in year two of being cancer free -- hence the "II" in our team name. This year, he aims to beat his RUNNING time from last year.

While Evan's life will be forever altered, the MMRF is removing obstacles faster and extending lives. But we need your help to raise awareness and funds to accelerate a cure for multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable. Your generosity truly makes a difference.

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. 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 our team's participation in this year's event. Your donation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families! This is personal. And it's SCIENCE, not FICTION. The MMRF needs all of our support to continue making history.

Thank you for your support,
Ali (and Evan, Jamie, Sean, and Cami)
