Dear Friends,

I will be participating in the Berlin Marathon on September 16th, 2018 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) team for cures. This fundraising mission for the MMRF is my way of saying thank you for the research that has been done to date in creating drugs which has saved my dad's life!

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. Today, my dad is in complete remission and because of the drugs available he is living a normal life.

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, my own included.

The Goal: Raise $4,000 for the MMRF!

The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world and the MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities worldwide, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for the past eleven years in a row.

Please support my participation in the Berlin Marathon benefiting the MMRF. I have made a commitment to raise at least $4,000, and I need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!

The work ahead of me? Race 26.2 miles and raise at least $4,000 for the MMRF. Training for this event is a big challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.

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

Thanks!
Clive
