Welcome to Art For Charity at South Grand Fall Fest.

South Grand Fall Fest was a lot of fun and the kids sold $350 of art work. A few incredibly generous donors personally impacted by Multiple Myeloma donated another $350 yesterday plus $50 here online. The kids would be so grateful if you could help them get to their $1000 goal.

Thank you!

Recently, Delaney and Adele got the idea to host a booth to sell their artwork and donate money raised to find a cure for Multiple Myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is currently incurable. Their Great-Aunt (and third Grandma) has this type of cancer and she means the world to them.

The organizer at the South Grand Fall Fest has generously provided us a space to make their idea come to life. Please mark your calendars to come visit us on September 15, peruse the art and make a donation. We will be located on Humphrey Street just east of Grand Blvd. If you can't make it that day, donations can be made on this website.

Funds raised through MMRF events 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! 

Susan
