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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in December of 2010 and am in a complete remission. I am amazed at the work that the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation does. Their work increases the life span of patients diagnosed with this incurable disease. They have funded development of new drugs that patients can take when other drugs have failed to control MM. This charity has changed the course of MM-making it more of a chronic disease and increasing the life expectancy of those suffering from MM. They also hold educational meetings for patients and caregivers. Recently message boards were introduced where patients can come together to support each other. They are striving towards their ultimate goal of finding a cure by sharing data among researchers.
The staff at the MMRF is amazing. I feel that we are a team working together to help raise funds to support this great nonprofit. I have attended small and large gatherings, races and an awards dinner. Though the events are different, the feeling among all the attendees is always the same. Our lives would not be the same without the MMRF. There is not a greater or more productive nonprofit than the MMRF.
