     See everyone next year for our 8th Miracles for Myeloma. 



    Our Seventh Annual Miracles for Myeloma 5K run/walk will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2019!  Our sixth run/walk last year became an unbelievable event for all, and we raised over $80,000 in pursuit of the cure for multiple myeloma.  As a matter of fact, a Senior Brian D. Novis Research Grant was awarded to the entire Miracles for Myeloma event, and was presented to a researcher helping to find that cure at the American Society of Hematologist conference in December! It is once again our goal to raise awareness and money in our ongoing fight against this deadly disease.

    My personal story began almost 12 years ago in 2007, when I went to my primary care physician for my annual routine physical.  This appointment turned out to be anything but routine!  Imagine my surprise, confusion, and fear, when I was diagnosed with a disease that I never knew existed!  This disease, multiple myeloma, is defined as an incurable cancer of the plasma cells.

    My brother, Frank Guarino, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in June of 2011. He passed away just 18 months later, on December 31, 2012, at the age of 51.  When he was diagnosed, we had never heard of this disease but that changed after countless trips to Hackensack University Medical Center, two stem cell transplants and several chemotherapy treatments.  Frank was an avid runner since high school and he had discussed wanting to raise money for multiple myeloma research by hosting a 5K race. His life was cut short prior to seeing this goal emerge as a miracle.
