Review for Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Inc., Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been living with Myeloma for almost 12 years now (diagnosed at age 34). I was introduced to the MMRF in 2003 when a friend of mine read an article in Family Circle, about this young woman, Kathy Giusti, who had myeloma and along with her twin sister, started the MMRF. Since then my husband , many friends and I have been avid supporters of the MMRF. This organization had given me great hope that someday there will be a cure for my cancer. This organization has done so much for Myeloma, a once unknown, underfunded cancer. MMRF has not only advanced research and treatments for Myeloma but for 30 other cancers. The efforts of the MMRF and their partners, Pharma and research centers, have brought 6 new drugs to help treat Myeloma. 6 drugs in less than 10 years!! An unheard of achievement in the research world!! Their research is also looking into the genetics of this disease and finding drugs that focus on our specific genetic abnormality....which there are many. I am eternally grateful to the the MMRF...because of them I have hope, hope for a long, quality filled life with my family and friends!
