I’ll be racing to the top of the Empire State Building to raise at least $10,000 for the MMRF on February 3, 2016. Training for this event has been tough, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.
My mother is currently battling this difficult disease. When she was diagnosed with MM a couple years ago my siblings and I wondered what we could do to help find a cure. In a crazy, serendipitous occurrence, our close friend unknowingly sent us an emotional video from someone who was battling MM and talked about what MMRF was doing to cure it. I exclaimed, “That’s what my mom has!” The solution I was looking for virtually fell in my lap. It is great for me to be able to get involved and do something other than just hope and wait. Fortunately, Mom is still enjoying a great quality of life and the treatments have been remarkably successful. The work being done by the MMRF is fast-tracking drugs that are extending lives and improving quality of life for patients. With your help, we can help fund more therapies that will help patients like my mother.
I have made a commitment to raise at least $10,000, and I need your help to get there. Take this opportunity to give back and contribute whatever you can. Even $10 adds up!
