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.

I’ve committed to running 13.1 miles in addition to raising $1,000 to benefit the MMRF, in honor of someone close to me who is a survivor.

Multiple myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer and, though much progress has been made, is rarely curable. Myeloma still has one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers.

The MMRF is leading in the push for the advancement of multiple myeloma therapies through investigating and funding the most promising treatments. 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.

Treatment options for multiple myeloma include drug therapies, stem cell transplants & clinical trials. Because there are 12 different types of multiple myeloma, and because patients often need new treatment options when they relapse, funding new treatment options is extremely vital.

Partnering with the MMRF was an extremely personal decision but I am so excited to support such a great organization. Please support my participation in the UA NYC Half benefiting the MMRF, any donation would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks for reading,
Heather
