ONE DAY TO GO --
PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL
--and I promise to stop posting (until next year)! :-)
Not everyone with Myeloma is a septuagenarian like me. There are YOUNG people with families dealing with this incurable disease ---Never knowing if they will see their babies and children grow up.---Not able to make plans for the future.
---Never knowing what the next month's lab results will bring.
It is for those fellow myeloma friends of mine that I fundraise for a CURE.
And I'll be wearing in-memory of stickers for cousin Duane, the "Purple lady" Mad, and MMfighter Joy while I walk in their honor.
Thank you to our team and all who have already donated.
Welcome to our 5th year of Team Remission Possible!
Team members: Judy Bracik CAPTAIN, Frank Davis, Julie Hauf, Charles Primm, Danny Primm, Konnor Schmidt, Elaina Schmidt, Danika Schmidt, Steve Peake, Elizabeth Peake, Thomas McCabe, Vero Iglesias, and Thomas Jr. Colin Davis, Nicole Trboyevich-Davis
Our team is participating in the 2019 Defeat Multiple Myeloma 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk on Sunday, June 23 at Magnuson Park.
Each member of this team plays a part in bringing myeloma treatment options to patients faster and helping fund research to find a cure for this cancer. Together, we are building community, supporting survivors, remembering loved ones lost, and funding research that is giving new hope to patients.
Please join us in this fight and increase our impact by making a donation to our team or to one of our team members today--
100% of all funds raised will go directly to advancing multiple myeloma cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
What is Multiple Myeloma?
Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells found in bone marrow. Normal plasma cells help the immune system fight disease, but when plasma cells become cancerous they grow out of control.
Why support this event?
Defeat Multiple Myeloma’s mission is to support research that seeks to discover new treatments, improve the quality of life for myeloma patients, and ultimately find a cure for this devastating form of cancer. Funds from the 2019 Defeat Multiple Myeloma event will continue to support immunotherapy research and clinical trials at Fred Hutch which are using CAR-T cells and have shown very promising early results for patients.
