Fourth Annual Walkathon and BBQ to
End Multiple Myeloma
Flushing Meadows Park
Once again, I am pleased to announce our annual Walkathon & BBQ to End Multiple Myeloma, a pernicious form of cancer that adversely affects hundreds of thousands of people stricken by the illness and their families.
Many of you may know me from our previous Walkathons and BBQs, for those of you who do not, my name is Theresa Tucker. Eight years ago, after enjoying excellent health my entire life, my Doctors informed me I had multiple myeloma, a life threatening and altering form of cancer. I became determined to fight the disease, with the help of my physicians, family, friends and other multiple myeloma patients. I became educated about this life threatening, crippling disease, its current treatments and continuing research and I am determined to contribute to the search for a cure.
Our Fourth Annual Walkathon & BBQ to End Multiple Myeloma will be held in Flushing Meadow Park, on Sunday, September 23, 2018, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Like last year, we will thank our supporters with a BBQ and to raise additional money for our cause, raffle wine and homemade mouthwatering baked goods. We encourage you to invite your family, friends and coworkers so we can grow our gathering of supporters to increase awareness about and to find a cure for multiple myeloma.
Together, we can help end the scourge of multiple myeloma. Not just for me and the hundreds of thousands presently afflicted with this disease, but also for the 30,000 people who will be diagnosed this year.
Our efforts continue to be rewarded. Aided by contributions and events like ours, the advances in multiple myeloma research and awareness have resulted in thousands of more people living healthier longer. As for me, after hurdling a few early challenging obstacles brought on by the disease, my cancer is presently in remission and I am living a quality, vigorous life.
I hope you can attend and/or donate to our cause and encourage others to do the same. We're counting on your support. Please click on the above link.
