Dear Friends and Family
6 years ago when this journey began in honor of my father, I did not know what it would become.
As I approach my 11th Ironman in Florida on November 2nd 2019, and as we close in on $100,000 raised for research I would like to thank all of you who have donated to my efforts through the years.
The job is not done and I will continue to do my part and push myself on behalf of this great cause. Your donations mean the world to me and to those not only fighting Multiple Myeloma, but all cancers.
The MMRF continues to be one of the leaders and one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly to research which has resulted in Eleven new treatments that have been approved by the FDA.

Thank you once again for your support!
The work ahead of me? Race 140.6 miles and raise at least $5,000 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. Over 30,000 people are diagnosed yearly with multiple myeloma and an estimated 12,000 are predicted to die each year from the disease. I'm proud to be part of the ACTION that is helping fund and fuel important research: Thanks to the important work of the MMRF and our partners, the FDA has approved ELEVEN new treatments in the time that it usually takes for ONE new drug to come to market. There are more treatment options in the pipeline. This is so important because myeloma is a cunning disease which morphs through treatment, meaning patients often need new treatment options when they relapse.
The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. Nearly 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly towards research and related programming. The MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for 16 years.
The Goal: Raise $5,000 for the MMRF!
Please support my participation in IRONMAN Florida benefiting the MMRF. I have made a commitment to raise at least $5,000, 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.
