Dear Friends and Family,
Help make a meaningful impact on cancer research and the lives of people impacted with cancer. 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. Your donations help the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) continue its support of cancer research. NONE OF YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE USED TO FUND THIS EVENT.
In March of 2018, I will be participating in the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma program, trekking to the Everest Base Camp & Kala Patthar to raise funds and awareness for the MMRF Team For Cures. The work ahead of me? Climb about 18,300 feet above sea level to the 'front door' of the tallest mountain in the world and raise at least $20,000 for the MMRF.
This cause is deeply personal to me. I lost my mother, Beatrice Glynn, to this multiple myeloma in February 2016. The teammates joining me on this endeavor include multiple myeloma patients, doctors, researchers and caregivers (like me). Together, we hope to help raise awareness and find a cure for this and other forms of cancer. Please join us by donating to this effort.
The MMRF's mission is to help accelerate next generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend patients’ lives in pursuit of a cure. With its unique end-to-end system in precision medicine, the MMRF is committed to high-quality data generation and open access to that data to drive new insights to clinical trials to optimize care for all patients.
The Goal: Raise $20,000 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 take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.
With compassion and hope,
