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

Rating: 5 stars  

MMRF is a remarkable foundation. They have found the magic model. Their mission is simple: cure the disease, and help patients on the way. They are not distracted from their mission by self-sustaining fund raising. They create a remarkable connection between the leading edge of medical discovery and individual patients through a compassionate and caring community, the staff of MMRF. Few in number, they bring the best docs face to face with patients and family, and work closely with pharm companies who want to drop the traditional ways of secretive research, and only work with a community of docs and companies who are willing to share data and results in the quickest manner. That's quite obviously why such rapid medical advances are taking place through MMRF and their approach to a cure. Our family has been touched by too many cancers. I've volunteered and contributed to many cancer causes and foundations. I'd not known of MMRF or the impact of multiple myeloma until my brother-in-law was diagnosed. I've never seen a foundation so efficient in delivering services and information to patients and their families. I've never seen one so diligent and committed to leveraging resources in enabling direct medical studies. And, I've never seen one so focused on the cure, not self-sustainment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Force multiply.
