EVENT UPDATE: POSTPONED
The health and well-being of our patients is our top priority. We are monitoring the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and have made the decision to postpone the event on April 25, 2020. We are actively working to schedule an alternate date and will provide any further updates as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year, we will be hosting an event to raise critical funds for MMRF. We are 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.
My dad fought a courageous battle for four years that he lost on April 24, 2019. Not one day went by that he didn’t give it everything he had. The pain and sadness of losing him has devastated our family. Our hope moving forward is that by doing this, we can help another family avoid such a tragedy by raising as much as we can to help give someone else even just one more year, month or day to spend with their loved ones.
We will be having a fundraiser on the one year anniversary of losing my dad, April 25, 2020 starting at 6pm at the Lexington Knights of Columbus. The cost will be $20 at the door and kids will be free. We will have dinner, raffles, a DJ and will be taking donations there. If you are unable to make it please consider donating here. No donation is too small and is greatly appreciated. #MACSTRONG
A pioneer in precision medicine, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) seeks to find a cure for all multiple myeloma patients by relentlessly pursuing innovations that accelerate the development of precision treatments for cancer. 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 has created the business model around cancer—from data to analytics to the clinic. The MMRF identifies barriers and then finds the solutions to overcome them, bringing in the best partners and aligning incentives in the industry to drive better outcomes for patients. Since its inception, the organization has collected thousands of samples and tissues, opened nearly 100 trials, helped bring 11 FDA-approved therapies to market, and built CoMMpass, the single largest genomic dataset for any cancer. Today, the MMRF is building on its legacy in genomics and is expanding into immune-oncology, as the combination of these two fields will be critical to making precision medicine possible for all patients. The MMRF has raised nearly $500 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs.
Thank you so much!
