My association with this group is one of involvement through practicality and curiosity. I have this group to be hardworking and diligent in the pursuit of funds used to pursue a cure for myeloma. I wish them only the best. Dr. Z.

I attended a fundraiser dinner for this chartity and was impressed with the people who attended and their authentic passion to help. What was terrific to see is that I had an opportunity to meet people who received significant benefits from this organization. Nice to see that our money was really having an impact! I was shocked that our AZ native american community are not educated and not helped like the folks near cities. Yet, it was AZ Myeloma Network that took the time and resources to help educate, inpiire and help this group of people. We need more charities like them! They seem to put the resources into action in order to really help future generations.

These are wonderful people devoted to bringing relief and hope to thousands of people. This is a difficult cause, and one which does not get the kind of attention and funding that it needs. I have CLL, a related disease, and I totally support the incredible work of the dedicated people at AZ Myeloma Network.

It all started with "Do you need any help with that?" I was working at a Phoenix hospital in the area of tissue donation. As this was almost 10 years ago, before genetics and personalized medicine were well-known, I thought I could contribute something unique to AZMN. One thing let to another and I became a Board Member. I don't like to be spread thin, so I discern my volunteer time carefully. The characteristic that most drew me to AZMN was passion. If Barbara and Jack could, they would help every person in AZ with every type of cancer. The organization grew from just serving multiple myeloma patients to serving several types of cancer patients and to serving their care-givers. The services range from medical to nutritional to psychological, just to name a few. And, being on the Board for a number of years, every dollar is spent wisely. No frills here. It's all about the patients. I'm honored and blessed to call Barbara and Jack friends and to still be a part of this great organization.
