I am once again participating in the Myeloma March as last year was a success for our first Myeloma fundraiser for Vancouver Island. We raised over $20,000 and would like to improve that number this year for the second annual Myeloma March on Vancouver Island in Nanaimo.
Just a few decades ago, diagnosis of Myeloma usually meant patients on average lived only 3-5 years. Through research funded by donations and grants) we have seen patient survival increase and hopefully we can soon turn this incurable disease into a manageable disease!
It is my belief that when I was diagnosed in 2017 that without treatment I may not be here today! The centre where I received my Stem Cell Transplant was created through fundraising events and donations from locals like Diana Krall with her husband, Elvis Costello, as well as friends James Taylor, Elton John, and Sarah McLachlan.
It is my hope that research can turn this incurable disease into a manageable one in my lifetime. Please help by donating to my Myeloma March this September 2, 2019 in Maffeo Sutton Park.
