Dear Friends and Family,

Since my dad passed away from Multiple Myeloma last August, I have been trying to think of a way to honor his memory and help others who are fighting the battle that he sadly lost. After searching for months for the best way to raise money and awareness for MM, I came across the amazing fitness events offered by the MMRF. What better way to remember my dad than by utilizing my love of fitness (which he always supported so much) with a memorable, challenging hike with others whose lives have been impacted by MM?

I will be participating in the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma program in August 2018 by hiking to Crater lake in Oregon to raise funds and awareness for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF).

The work ahead of me? Climb through Crater Lake National Park, including reaching the summit of Mount Scott, and raise at least $1,500 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 tripled the lifespan of myeloma patients after diagnosis. 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 $1,500 for the MMRF's life-extending cancer research!

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 Crater Lake Peak Weekend trek benefiting the MMRF. I have made a commitment to raise at least $1,500, 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.

Thanks!
Amanda
