Laura Feeney & Carl Knutson
Please join me and Carl in honoring the memory of Jeanette Knutson with a donation to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. We have a goal to raise $2500 in her memory.
This year, we've organized our own charity bike ride to benefit the MMRF. On October 12th & 13th we'll head out into the Texas hill country for a two day bicycle ride from Kingsland (near Inks Lake) to Fredericksburg, and then from Fredericksburg to New Braunfels.
I plan to challenge myself to ride the longest distance I've ever done in a single weekend: 200 miles. Carl will join me in riding some portion of the route.
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.
We hope you'll join us in supporting this great charity!
Laura & Carl
