Dear Friends,

I will be participating in the Washington DC Rock N Roll Marathon as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures in honor of my dad, who continues to fight this disease.

The work ahead of me? Race 26.2 miles and raise at least $1,000 for the MMRF. Training for this event is a big challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges my dad and others face 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 there are 12 different types of multiple myeloma, and 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 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!
Jenna

While I’ve lost my mom, I know the importance of walking (or running) and fundraising for our parents. You’re a strong person for helping your dad fight this any way you can. I wish you the best of luck on your run!
