Help us find a CURE for cancer.

Our dad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in January 2015. After 6 months of intensive chemotherapy topped off with a stem cell transplant, we are very glad to say that he's currently in remission. However, there is no cure for multiple myeloma so his fight is far from over.

In light of our family's experience with cancer and knowing that it's touched the lives of almost everyone we know, we will be walking to raise money to fight it on April 2nd. The walk we are participating in will raise money for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF).

Why the MMRF

- Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable.

- The drugs that have so far saved our dad's life are a direct result of the work of the MMRF. All of them received FDA approval in just the last 10 years.

- The MMRF is the world's number one private funder of multiple myeloma research and directs 90% of its budget to research.

The funds we give to the MMRF will truly make a difference as the MMRF's work has:

- Nearly tripled patient survival

- Delivered 10 new treatments in a decade

- Launched over 60 new clinical trials

The MMRF Story: The MMRF was established in 1998 by twin sisters Karen Andrews and Kathy Giusti, soon after Kathy's diagnosis with multiple myeloma. The mission of the MMRF is to pursue innovative means that accelerate the development of next-generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.
