Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page

We are proud to be supporting the 2016 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Light the Night Event!

Because of the commitment of organizations like LLS to fund innovative research projects and connect patients with supportive programming, financial aid, caregiver resources, and trasnportation to and from treatment, we have made great progress in treating and supporting people with multiple myeloma.

Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer characterized by the uncontrolled growth of plasma cells, a part of the immune system. Our patients inspire us each and every day to not only provide the best possible medical care, but to research new treatments in order to one day cure myeloma.

We have already made huge strides and are currently able to narrowly tailor treatment specific to each patient. A wide array of drugs now exist to manage and treat myeloma and its effects. it is through our bench to bedside approach that we are able to offer clinical trials and participate in bringing new therapeutics to market so that all myeloma patients across the country and throughout the world can access these cutting edge treatment options.

These new treatments have greatly improved survival and quality of life for our patients, but as people with myeloma live longer and their risk of developing a second blood cancer increases. In collaboration with Weill Cornell's Monica Guzman, PhD, the Myeloma Center has received a prestigious translational research grant from LLS to study the factors that may contribute to the development of second primary malignancies in patients with multiple myeloma. Additionally our research is examining early changes that could be used to predict risk and ultimately prevent the development of myeloma.

As we work to raise funds and awareness for this important cause, we'll also be spotlighting some of our patients. Check back soon for an update!

 

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
