Dear Friends,

This year, I will be participating in the Iowa Miles for Myeloma Walk/Run.

I am committed to raising awareness and funds to accelerate finding a cure for multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is currently incurable.

Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event have helped to:
• Triple patient survival
• Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
• Launch over 70 new clinical trials
• Create the largest genomic data set in any cancer today—leading the
effort to treat myeloma based on each patient’s genetic make-up

The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. Together with its partners, the MMRF has created the only end-to-end solution in precision medicine and the single largest genomic dataset in all cancers. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts.

The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. Since its inception, the organization has raised almost $400 million and directs nearly 90% of it’s expenses to research and related programs. The MMRF has received Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for sixteen years.

While the MMRF has made enormous progress, they still have much to do and cannot continue to do great research without your support. Please join me to fight multiple myeloma, as your donation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank you!

Michael
