Fundraising for the Falmouth Road Race

Hi All,

I am running the Falmouth Road Race on August 19, 2018 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures in memory of my dear family friend, Andreas Alexandrou.

We lost Andreas to multiple myeloma on May 31, 2018. A mechanical engineer and a proud Greek Cypriot, Andreas was a brilliant researcher and an outstanding teacher. He was gentle and kind, a man who loved the sea and the search for the perfect photograph, antiquities, and his friends around the globe. Most of all, he was devoted to his beloved wife, Lisa, and their children, Nadia and Nicolas. To our family, he was a brother, uncle, and friend. We loved him, and we will miss him always.

Multiple myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer with one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers. Together, Andreas and Lisa fought this disease every minute of every day with every weapon they could find for nearly twelve long years.

MM still has no cure, but great progress is being made - and the MMRF is playing a large role in that.

I have made a commitment to raise at least $2,000 for the MMRF. Please contribute whatever you can. All amounts matter - it all adds up!

Thanks,
Zoë
