Dear Friends,

I will be participating in the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon on March 17, 2019 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.

The work ahead of me? Race 13.1 miles and raise at least $1,000 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 and, though much progress has been made, myeloma still has one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers.

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. And there are 2-3 more treatment options right around the corner.

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. An outstanding 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 the past twelve years in a row.

The Goal: Raise $1,000 for the MMRF!

Please support my participation in the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon benefiting the MMRF. I have made a commitment to raise at least $1,000, 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.

Thanks!
Susan

No mom could be prouder than me to support Susan's combined love of running with her personal relationship with the MMRF. Thanks to all her running friends who have trained and run races with her, she has logged nearly 17,000 miles in 14 years. Way to go, Suze!
