Dear Friends,

I will be participating in the 2017 Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek on Feb 18-28 2017 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.

The work ahead of me? Climb 19,341 ft to the summit of Mt Kilamanjro and raise at least $20,000 for the MMRF. Training for this event is a big challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.

Multiple myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer and, sadly, has one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers. But while there is no cure, great progress is being made.

In fact, thanks to the important work of the MMRF, the world's leading private funder of myeloma research, the FDA has approved TEN new treatments, including FOUR in just the past 18 months – a track record that's unparalleled in the world of oncology. These drugs have almost tripled the lifespan of myeloma patients. And now the MMRF is funding over 20 additional treatments in various stages of development, giving hope to tens of thousands of patients and their families.

The Goal: Raise $ 20,000 for the MMRF!

The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. An outstanding 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly towards research and related programming. And the MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for the past eleven years in a row.

Please support my participation in the 2017 Mt Kilimanjaro Trek benefiting the MMRF. I have made a commitment to raise at least $20,000, and I need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!

Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.

I have had the honor of having to update my page here for the second time! When I reached my original goal of $10K and just recently after passing the $15K mark! I'm amazed and humbled by all the support that I've received during this challenge. Thank you so much for joining our team as "we climb towards a cure"

Thanks!
Terry
