Hello, friends! Sandra here.

My dad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma last year. He'll be undergoing treatment for the foreseeable future, so I'm hoping to raise a few bucks in an effort to raise the MMRF in their research and advocacy efforts, and to raise the prospects for other folks like him who have been, or will be, diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

If you can contribute one dollar to my fundraising effort, I'd be very grateful. You'll be fueling a good cause *and* my enthusiasm as I jog the MMRF 5K on Sunday, March 31st. :)

Many thanks, much love.


Cheers,
Sandra

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

This year, I will be participating in the 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 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 will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank You!
