Hi Friends,

My brother Ophire was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2008 at the age of 34. He has been battling this rare cancer of the plasma cells for the past 11 years. There's no currently no cure. I'm grateful to share that he's now in a very good partial remission status. God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. Ophire is a warrior with a positive outlook and never complains. We're praying for a complete remission and that the cancer will be gone this year!

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
Launch 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!
