Help Find a Cure for MMRF

Lee Kirschbaum

Dear Friends,

I will be participating in the TCS NYC Marathon on November 3, 2019 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.

This is the second time I will be running the NY Marathon part of the MMRF Team for Cures - and I'm hoping to make this year even better than the last time. 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 TEN 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 take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.

Thanks!

Lee
