Welcome to Team #FightLikeMel!

Melissa (and Taylor) have been so moved by the outpouring of love and support from their family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. Everyone has been so amazing about wanting to DO something to help, and here is an opportunity!

On March 31, Mel will be 75% complete with her first phase of treatment, and we want to celebrate by joining together in raising funds and walking for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. We hope you'll join us, whether it's walking that day or contributing a monetary donation in her honor.

Mel's doctors have continued to be awed by her body's response to treatment -- she is doing better than they've ever seen! But her response to this treatment wouldn't be happening if people didn't help support the research that brought it to her.

This year, we will be participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. We 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 our 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!
