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

Rating: 5 stars  

My dad lost his 11 year battle with myeloma about two years ago. While we miss him every day, I know that if not for the MMRF, my dad's battle would have been much shorter. The MMRF has been incredible in bringing new treatments to the market and for that, my family and I are forever grateful as it prolonged my dad's life.

Also, the MMRF has provided a real sense of togetherness for our family with other families affected by myeloma. We have been fundraising by participating in the Chicago Race for Research for 13 years, and have even gone on to find new, creative ways to raise money and awareness for this amazing organization. Since the MMRF donates an almost unheard of over 90 cents of each dollar directly toward research, AND shares information with other worthy organizations, it is easy to rally the help of our family and friends for this cause. We sincerely look forward to our time spent raising much needed funds and awareness for the MMRF and will continue doing it even more in the future.

To everyone at the MMRF, thank you for everything you do!
