Ride For Life

Johnathon Akin

Johnathon Akin

Hello, my name is Johnathon Akin. I will be undertaking a fund-raising bike ride for Multiple Myeloma Research, from San Francisco to San Diego mid-September this year (2018). The 700 mile long ride will be on coastal roads and should take me 10 days.

The fund raising was inspired by my work friend, Bob Novak, who was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (MM), a blood cancer, 4 years ago at the age of 58. In the past people who developed MM died within a year of their diagnosis. Today, because of treatment and the results of research people are living fruitful lives for many years, half for 5 years and other up to 10 years or more.

To undertake this long and arduous endeavor, I have been training for the past 8 months and can now ride almost 70 miles a day.

Please donate to help prolong and improve the lives of those who have developed the disease, more than half a million worldwide. In American the National Cancer institute has estimated that in 2018, 31,000 this year will be diagnosed with MM and 13,000 will die from it.

Won’t you please help me in my effort to raise funds to find a cure for this destructive disease that takes the lives of about 50% of the people diagnosed within 5 years. There is no known cure yet!!!
