BENEFITING: PHILADELPHIA MULTIPLE MYELOMA NETWORKING GROUP
EVENT DATE: Apr 23, 2016
You can help me make a difference! I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in July 2008. Myeloma is an incurabe, but treatable blood cancer. Researchers are developing therapies that are extending the lives of myeloma patients. In the last 15 years the FDA approved 11 new myeloma therapies whuch more than quadrupled overall survival. But myeloma is still considered incurable and unfortunately myeloma survivors relapse and eventually run out of options. This year was avery bad year for me. I lost several of my very dear friends to this dreaded disease because they ran out of options. This is why I am raising money,
Once a year I ask my friends and family to support me in my efforts to raise funds for Miles for Myeloma. The funds raised from this event will benefit the research and patient services efforts of the International Myeloma Foundation, The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Philadelphia Multiple Myeloma Networking Group. I can personally attest that these organizations are a life line for the myeloma community. Knowledge is power and these organizations empower patients with the latest updates about myeloma biology, side effect management, treatment options, financial resources and clinical research. Pleae help me make a difference by supporting my fundraising page. No amount is too small. Any donation will be appreciated.
If you prefer to donate offline and send me a check written to PMMNG- Miles for Myeloma that will be fine too! My address is 711 Pilgrim Avenue, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648
