Its time for the multiple myeloma fundraiser run and this year im participating as a survivor!!! I couldn't be more thankful for the treatments i received but there is still more work to be done as Multiple Myeloma isn't yet curable. The 2017 Defeat Multiple Myeloma race will provide critical funding that will enable a clinical trial to open up for patients with multiple myeloma. Clincial trials are super important to the eventual finding of a cure, i was lucky to be able to participate in one myself. Fred Hutch has spent years developing a targeted form of immunotherapy that delivers radioactive particles directly to multiple myeloma cells. They are now in the final stage of the process and anticipate opening a clinical trial within the next 12 to 18 months. They need additional funds to pay for the production of the antibody treatment in quantities suitable for human trials. Your dollars will go directly to this production effort and will allow patients to receive a completely new treatment approach.
