Once again I am joining my friend Robin Sully who has Multiple Myeloma to take part in the MMCanada walk Sept. 22nd 2019. Robin and I are old friends from high school, she has had MM since 2012. She is very active on the MM board plus helping at the local fundraising level. (Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells found in the bone marrow. A plasma cell is a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection. Its cause is unknown but its prevalence is increasing. Every day, 7 Canadians are diagnosed with myeloma. There are over 7,500 Canadians living with multiple myeloma. With the aging population (the average age of diagnosis is in the mid-60’s)
This year our Walk is supporting the expansion of the Ottawa General Hospital’s Car-T Cell program, an exciting new immune treatment for patients with blood cancers, that also has the potential to eventually treat solid tumour cancers. A worthwhile investment for all cancer patients!
I would be deeply
grateful if you would fund my walk with Robin’s team the Myeloma Matadors. By making a donation to our team, you are helping to fund clinical
research and support advocacy for accelerated access to game-changing therapies
