Team Dambowic

Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run

Hard to believe that even after 1.5 years, I am shocked to be requesting money for research to cure a cancer that is running around my own body. It is still easy to go into denial that I am on this side of the fight!!

I am hoping we will be in shape to walk the 5K ( about 3 miles) on April 2nd in SF and want to learn how to ask and accept team support 

I really do not want Chaya and I to walk alone as 'Team Dambowic'. Our goal is to have 18 friends walk and raise funds with us. Can you be one of those?

 If not we are asking you to donate.

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 have helped to:

Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
Launched over 60 new clinical trials
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) was established in 1998 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by twin sisters Karen Andrews and Kathy Giusti, soon after Kathy's diagnosis with multiple myeloma. The mission of the MMRF is to relentlessly pursue innovative means that accelerate the development of next-generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.


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! The MMRF is bringing treatments to trial 60 percent faster than the industry standard and tripling life expectancy. THIS IS SCIENCE, NOT FICTION. The MMRF needs your support. History is being made, so I invite you to join us.

Thank You!
