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

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was diagnosed with MM in 2010, my daughter and niece found out about MMRF and immediately signed up to walk in the Chicago area Race for Research which was a week after my surgery. My wife, sister, brother-in-law, and son-in-law also walked on that rainy chilly fall day, but, from that walk, we have discovered what an outstanding organization MMRF is. The information they have provided about MMRF and the progress being made in its treatment has been so helpful as we have navigated our own journey with the illness. And the fact that MMRF has helped not only to fund much of the research but to spur some of that research and the collaborative way in which it is done is truly amazing. To top it all off, they are very resourceful in the way that they manage the funds they have raised so that almost all of it goes into research. We have walked in both the Chicago and Twin Cities races since 2011 and have raised over $22,000 for MMRF. We look forward to joining family and friends each year hoping that a cure will be found soon.
