About Rounds for Ron: On July 20th, 2020 25 golf teams will come together to celebrate the life of Ronald Louis Caredeo and fundraise for the Multiple Myeloma Foundation in the inaugural Rounds for Ron Charity Golf Tournament. Ron loved the game of golf, and grew to be a very good golfer over the years. Those who knew Ron knew that he enjoyed it for both sport, and the friendships he made along the way. He would always say that he never felt as much at peace as when he did on the golf course.

About the MMRF: 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.
