Friends and Family,

The myeloma community is one group my family and I never expected to become a part of but in 2012 the rock of our family, my mother Mary, was diagnosed with this disease. This was an extremely scary time filled with a lot of uncertainty. Thanks to God, the MMRF and many skilled physicians, my mom was in remission for many years. This July, we learned that her myeloma is back, and she will be starting up with treatment again in August.

Just in the last couple months, a new drug was FDA approved to treat multiple myeloma. Without funds raised by events like Iowa Miles for Myeloma, new treatments would not be able to be developed as quickly as they are. Even so, we need MORE drugs approved so that those living with multiple myeloma don't run out of options and so one day we can find a CURE for this cancer.

To help support all myeloma patients, please consider making a donation. ANY AMOUNT IS SIGNIFICANT as 100% of funds raised for this walk go towards research.

Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised for 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 secret to living is giving."

With love,
Team Mama's Mob
