THE STORY:

Hello Friends, I am participating in the Multiple Myeloma walk/run on June 25, 2017 in support of my friend Laura Edain who was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma last year. You can read about Laura's experiences and musings here https://lalliw.wordpress.com/. Donations from this event will go to help develop a form of immunotherapy using CAR-T cells, a potentially curative therapy for multiple myeloma patients. Thanks to a generous donor, all donations are being matched 1:1 up to $100,000. What is immunotherapy? Immunotherapy is an innovative treatment approach that empowers the human immune system to overcome cancer and other debilitating diseases. The immune system — a complex conglomerate that includes disease-fighting cells and proteins — is well-known for its remarkable ability to locate, recognize and attack invaders like the common cold. However, the immune system is not always able to eliminate cancer cells when they form. And once malignant tumors like multiple myeloma develop, they can use a variety of evasion tactics to outwit the immune system. Thanks to continually evolving research, scientists at Fred Hutch have discovered new ways to tap into the immune system's inherent disease-fighting power and give it the upper hand against cancer. The most exciting part? Because immunotherapies harness the patient’s own immune system, they are far less likely to produce the side effects common to traditional multiple myeloma treatments. Please consider a donation to help researchers work toward a cure. More details about multiple myeloma can be found here https://www.myeloma.org/what-is-multiple-myeloma Thank you! Laura
