Mighty Myeloma Fighters Celebrating Life

Mighty Myeloma Fighters Celebrating Life

Welcome to the fundraising home page of the Might Myeloma Fighters! We are a hearty, spirited and strong-willed crew, working to stamp out blood cancers where ever we find them as we Celebrate Life to the fullest! Most of the members of our team of Champions are busy fighting their own blood cancer or are friends and family of Myeloma Super Heroes.

 

The Mighty Myeloma Fighters is organized as part of the NC Triangle Multiple Myeloma Support Group, a support program for Multiple Myeloma patients, their caregivers and friends. Support group members along with other blood cancer survivors and friends are participating in the October 22 Triangle area Light the Night fundraising event organized by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For us, it is a Celebration of Life – both for those of us in our ongoing fight with Myeloma and in memory of those us who have gone on before.

 

The Light the Night Walk brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and our team is helping to shine a light on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

 

We want you to be a cancer fighter with us, either by joining our walking team on October 22 or by contributing to LLS through our team or team members. Don’t get me wrong – we are hard-core, all-out cancer fighters.  Every day we stand strong and fight the fight.  But we cannot do it alone. We absolutely need your support for LLS’s mission of finding new treatments and cures as well as improving the lives of people and families battling blood cancers.

In the 60 years of its history, LLS has invested over a billion dollars in research and has been directly responsible for changing some blood cancers from an automatic death sentence to manageable chronic diseases. Significant progress has been made, in particular, in treatment of juvenile blood cancers. And many of the treatments for blood cancers have proven to be effective with other cancers.

 

Please join our team or contribute today. Use the links on this page to securely contribute to LLS on behalf of the MM Fighter team or any of the individual team members.

 

Thank You!
