Racing for a Cure
I am so excited to be running the Boston Marathon on April 16, 2012 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) PowerTeam! In June of 2010, at the age of 39, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma cancer, currently an incurable blood cancer. After months of chemotherapy and a life-saving stem cell transplant, I am stronger than ever and no cancer can be detected!

I want to keep it that way for as long as I can and help the many thousands of other people battling this cancer. I am honored to support the MMRF, which has helped to implement many new treatments to fight multiple myeloma (treatments which are also being used to fight 30 other cancers!).

Although progress has been made in treating multiple myeloma, the five-year relative survival rate remains one of the lowest of all cancers.

The mission of the MMRF is to relentlessly pursue innovative means that accelerate the development of next generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.

Led by Founder and CEO Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient and Harvard MBA Kathy Giusti, the MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world, well known for its innovative and results-oriented business model approach to funding cancer research.

Please support my participation in the Boston Marathon benefiting the MMRF! Your donation can help make the difference! I have made a commitment to raise at least $4000. I need your help to get there. Please help as you can. Any donation is greatly appreciated. If you would like to honor a loved one who is fighting cancer today or who has lost their good fight, with your generous donation I will wear their name on my running shirt the day of the race.

Thank you, Jeanie
