Becca's Fundraising Page
My younger brother Michael was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma two years ago, a rare diagnosis for someone so young (43). Myeloma is a cancer in the plasma cells and bone marrow and it is not curable. He was able to achieve a partial remission after a stem cell transplant but unfortunately will need to remain on chemo the rest of his life. The ongoing side effects are especially devastating for such an active and energetic guy. But Michael is a huge fighter and an inspiration to all with his positive attitude and "never give up" way of living!
So our family and friends will once again be walking/running in the Miles for Myeloma 5K event on April 22nd in Philadelphia. Our team is Michael's Mighty Marchers and our goal is to be the top fundraising team again this year!!
There are new treatments coming out yearly and it's thanks to your ongoing support that progress is being made to help patients survive longer. So I am asking once again for your generosity as we try and raise vital funds for myeloma research and care. Any gift of any size is meaningful to me, and especially my brother and his family :) Thank you for your help in trying to speed the progress against this awful disease.
