Once again, I am participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. While I am not actually walking this year, 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 remains incurable.

Last year, thanks to many extremely generous supporters, I succeeded in raising over $10,000 for this annual event. I am grateful beyond words and hesitate to ask again, but your generous support truly makes a difference. Funds raised at this event over the years have helped to:
*Nearly triple patient survival
*Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
*Launch over 80 new clinical trials

When first diagnosed, I did not know if I’d live to celebrate another Christmas with my family. In the 3 years since then, I have become a grandmother to the sweetest 4 babies and I want to enjoy them as long as possible. Thanks to the MMRF, I have hope!

The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews, 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! 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, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, 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.

I hope you will support my virtual participation in this year’s MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Your donation will have a positive impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families and will mean so much personally to my family and me.

Thank you very much!
Jo-Anne
