Power To Make The Difference: Taking on My Own Race and Fighting Myeloma!
Kit Myers's Fundraising Page
I am participating in the MMRF Endurance Events Program part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) PowerTeam.

On January 2, 2014, our lives changed forever when George was diagnosed with cancer. Then weeks later, we were blessed to learn it was a solitary plasmocytoma. No other cancer was located. His cure odds are very high with treatment. Unfortunately, this plasma cancer can always rear it's ugly head elsewhere or progress into multiple myeloma. That uncertainty leads me here, to raise money for multiple myeloma research. Why not help fund research that one day could save my husband's life? Many things are out of my control in C-town but this, this I can control. I can run to raise funds and awareness for an illness that I hope to never personally meet.

UPDATE: George completed his radiation treatment for the plasmocytoma on March 19, 2014. We will find out at the end of April how well the treatment worked.

UPDATE: All tests look good and "normal"! We said goodbye to our radiation oncologist this week. George has follow up tests every 3 months with his medical oncologist. We have continued to be blessed along our journey. Though it's a never ending path we follow, we strive to be positive along the way. Maybe the cancer realized we were too much for it and will give up any future attempts. Whatever it's plans may be, you can bet we are prepared to fight! Cancer has met it's match with Crazy M!

The Purpose: Help fund research that is extending the lives of patients and getting us closer to a cure!

Multiple myeloma is, at this time, an incurable blood cancer. 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 research that accelerates the development of next generation treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.

The MMRF is the world's leading private funder of myeloma research. Their work has contributed to FDA approval of six new cancer drugs in less than a decade – a track record that's unparalleled in the world of oncology.

The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. An outstanding 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly towards research and related programming. The MMRF is consistently recognized in the top 1% of all charities reviewed by evaluators like Charity Navigator.

The Goal: Raise $2,500 for the MMRF!

Please support my training and participation to benefit the MMRF! I have made a commitment to raise at least $1,500, and I need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!

Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.

Thanks!
