Dear Friends and Family,
 
This is our 11th year participating in the MMRF's annual Race for Research in Boston.  
 
The Race for Research means so much to us and to our whole family. It's a time to remember and honor our dad, Jeff Riskin, who battled multiple myeloma for five years with humor and dignity - and a fighting spirit that made him our most competitive fundraiser year after year!  Even though Dad lost his fight five years ago, we will continue to raise funds and awareness - and to celebrate his life at this fun and inspirational event.

Over the years, the MMRF community has become a second family to us. We have met determined doctors, indefatigable patients, and devoted family members. We have worked with the most dedicated, caring, and passionate group of people - the MMRF staff and Power Team - who will not rest until a cure is found. We are not only running for our dad, but to support our friends who are currently living with multiple myeloma: Jeannie Dreyer, Bill O'Halloran, Dick Olkkola, Joan Knapton, and Richard Abramson. We also honor the memory of our cousin Len Fleischer, who lost his own battle last year.
 
Since 2004, our team has raised about $150,000 for multiple myeloma research - and we couldn't have done it without your friendship, generosity, and support. Your past donations have helped fund six new myeloma drugs in the past 10 years - doubling the life expectancy of patientsThis year our goal is to raise another $10,000. We would be grateful for any amount you can contribute to help us in our fight against this incurable blood cancer.  
 
Love,
Karen and Susan
