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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2011. Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer. Thanks to the MMRF, this cancer is being battled with new drug and treatment therapies that have emerged because of the support of the MMRF. Because the CEO has multiple myeloma herself, she understands the complexities of the illness, its effects on the body, and the urgent need for continued research into new therapies. Those of us with MM want and cure. Based on the work of the MMRF, it is not hard to believe that a cure will be found.

Additionally, everyone I've come into contact with at the MMRF is fantastic! They are supportive, knowledgable, and are intent on finding new therapies and a cure. I can regularly expect emails or calls from the MMRF just checking in on me to see how I am managing my illness and how I am feeling. They recently launched a new Gateway, which brings together those of us with MM from around the world into a forum to exchange information and ideas, as well as to offer support. The Gateway will continue to bring topics of importance to participants and to the MMRF as well. It's an amazing opportunity for clients, caregivers, and researchers alike.

I am involved in the MMRF 5k Race for Research in Boston. I will always support the MMRF through this race and other opportunities, because I know they are leading the way in finding a cure and are using their research dollars prudently, expeditiously, and with focused intention. They are an organization that so clearly understands their priorities and objectives.
