|Last year's team|
Over the last 10 years the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) has aggressively been funding research to cure the disease. Its founder, herself a MM survivor, was recognized last year as one of Time Magazine's Top 100 People in Medicine. Her story was featured on the Today show earlier this year. A link to that interview appears on this blog.
Please give serious consideration to joining our team this year. The distance is 5K and you can make it a leisurely walk or a race. Last year I was in the hospital at the time of the walk, but I am looking forward to being a part of it this year. We hope to have a tent and special T-shirts and refreshments.
And if you don't live in the Chicago area or can't make it that day, please consider making a donation. Our goal this year is $10,000. Please follow this link attached to either join the team or to donate to the foundation.
Looking forward to seeing you in October. We are hoping for a beautiful autumn day in Chicago.
