Programs: The mission of the MMRF is to relentlessly pursue innovative means that accelerate the development of next-generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure. As the world's number-one private funder of multiple myeloma research, the MMRF has raised over $225 million since its inception and directs 90% of total budget to research and related programming.

Mission:
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Inc. is the world''s largest private funder of myeloma research. It''s mission: To accelerate the search for a cure for multiple myeloma. To achieve this purpose, four goals are pursued: Funding research in the field of multiple myeloma, building collaborations among researchers and industry, providing disease and treatment related information to patients and family members while advocating for optimal patient care, and raising awareness of multiple myeloma. The MMRF was started by Karen Andrews after her twin sister Kathy Giusti was diagnosed with MM at age 37. Both sisters were shocked by the lack of awareness and research funding for this incurable cancer and were determined to help find a cure.
Results:
By working closely with researchers, clinicians and our partners in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, we helped bring multiple myeloma patients six new treatments in one decade that are extending lives around the globe. We are now at a turning point where we have the knowledge, the team and the tools to build upon this success and advance the next generation of treatments.

We are reaching incredible milestones in advancing our innovative research portfolio of basic science, validation, and clinical trials programs to ensure that better, more effective treatments are brought to patients as soon as possible.

When I was diagnosed with MM in 2010, my daughter and niece found out about MMRF and immediately signed up to walk in the Chicago area Race for Research which was a week after my surgery. My wife, sister, brother-in-law, and son-in-law also walked on that rainy chilly fall day, but, from that walk, ... more »

As a 15 year survivor of multiple myeloma, I credit the MMRF with speeding new treatments through the approval process so that I have always had other options available to me. I am grateful for the work they do to get researchers and clinicians, as well as patients, to work together to facilitate ... more »
