Deb's Defenders

Stroll For A Cure

Stroll for a Cure

Last week we received sad news about one of our very one Nellie family members. We were told that our dear friend, and one of the kindest people you will ever meet, Debbie Gude, has been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Immediately, our Nellie family wanted to begin helping in anyway possible. We felt so helpless, what can we do? It began with a "Fight Song" by our 5th grade chorus and now we are going to participate in a walk that we read about in "The Ocean Star." Another person is walking on behalf of her father, who is now in remission. It seemed like a “sign” for us, so a group of us reached out to our Nellie friends and asked if we should do this, of course, everyone jumped on board. We are having t-shirts made, asking for donations for MMRF, and hoping to bring all of Point Pleasant together to help our friend, Deb. This is only the beginning for us, we will continue to fight alongside Deb and her family, until she is in remission. She is a warrior, our sunshine at school!! We can't wait to have her back with us.

We are "DEB'S DEFENDERS!!" Won't you please help us in our goal? Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!! We really do appreciate any amount you can donate, no amount is too small.

On Sunday, April 15th, at 8:30 am, we will be participating in a walk that is being held on the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk. If you would like to join us, please meet in front of Martell’s Tiki Bar by 8:30 am. This is 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. 

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!
