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 am doing this in honor of my mother, Veronica Capone who passed away from Multiple Myeloma in 2013. Veronica was a beautiful person inside and out, funny, hard-working, a loving mother and wife. I will think of her with every step. I will be also be remembering my father and all the loved ones my family and friends have lost as well.

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 a group that is helping fund and fuel important research: Thanks to the important work of the MMRF and their 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.

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 has earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating.

Please support my participation in the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon benefiting the MMRF. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!

Thanks!
Lorraine
