And they will in Cincinnati, Ohio during the Flying Pig Marathon on May 4 & 5, 2019. Our daughters, Ellen and Teresa started this fundraiser 8 years ago. It has expanded to include our children, grandchildren, extended family, multiple myeloma patients, caregivers and friends. Through their efforts, more than $33,000 has been raised for the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF). Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer, and due to advances in treatment and the availability of new drugs, life expectancy has greatly improved. The international Myeloma Foundation has been an important part of our battle with this disease: providing education, research dollars, guidelines, support for patients and families; and an initiative called the Black Swan Project which is a major push to cure this disease. The IMF provides support for our Cincy Myeloma Support Group. Patients and caregivers benefit from speakers, education and mutual support.
