Dear Friends and Family,

Once again I will be participating in the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma program. This time with my wife Niki Anthony by my side, we'll be hiking to Crater lake in Oregon this August, 2018. Our hope is to continue raising 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 may be a challenge, but nothing compared to the weekly treatments I continue to receive fighting 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. I'm happy to say that I have reached my 5 year mark with this cancer. I have also not known a week over these 5 years without some kind of active treatment and/or maintenance. It may be more 'treatable rather than terminal' but the continuous and ongoing treatments do take a toll and still impact quality of life and long term health.

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!
Ryan
