I’ve come a long way thanks to the miracle of modern science. But it’s not entirely a miracle – it is brilliant minds working hard and funding from people like you and me. As I am approaching the 2 year anniversary of my stem cell transplant I am feeling the need to give back. To raise money and awareness for those who have gone behind me and for the struggles (selfishly) that I will face down the road.
I am putting together a team to in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. And I invite you to join me on June 11th in New Canaan or to make a small donation to help fund the research in hopes that some day there will be a cure for multiple myeloma.
I share the photo above, which I lovingly call “Cancer on the Beach”, remembering the stem cell transplant, not how hard it was – but how amazing it was.
