THE STORY:

We run in memory of Judy Sike - the best mother, grandmother, wife, teacher, sister, and friend anyone could ask for.  She had a heart of gold and a zest for life.  She was taken way too soon and she is greatly missed.

Judy was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in early 2009.  She underwent high dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant which put her into remission for almost two years.  In the spring of 2011, she relapsed and was put on a pill form of chemotherapy...which she would be off and on until her body eventually developed a resistance to the drugs.  That happened in September, 2013...just a couple weeks before she was to go on her trip of a lifetime to Italy with her best friend.  It was heart-breaking.  She had to cancel her trip and she passed away on October 19, 2013.

Multiple Myeloma is the second most common blood cancer, though many people have never heard of it.  The American Cancer Society states that the current median 5 year survival rates by stage are 29-62 months.  Currently, there are not a lot of treatment options and we hope to help change that by supporting the MMRF.

Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is a leading cancer-research foundation that has helped to double survival for multiple myeloma patients since its inception.  Together with its partners in the pharmaceutical industry and at academic centers, the MMRF has contributed to the development of six new treatments in the last decade, several of which may be effective in treating other cancers.  The MMRF continues to build innovative collaborative models that will accelerate the development of new and better treatments for multiple myeloma and all cancer patients, and lead to cures.

Thank you for your support.
