Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation

WHAT IS THE MMRF’S VISION?
Patient-powered collaboration
We see a world where every person has precisely what they need to prevent or defeat multiple myeloma, where the entire community collaborates seamlessly from beginning to end, with ever-increasing momentum towards a cure.

WHAT IS THE MMRF’S MISSION?
As a patient-founded organization, we stand together with those who are battling multiple myeloma–patients, families, physicians, researchers, and investors. At the same time, we stand apart with our innovative approach. We are the ones who generate, interpret, and activate the largest collection of high-quality data, accessible to all.

About Multiple Myeloma
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cell. It is the second most common blood cancer. An estimated 30,300 adults will be diagnosed this year and 12,500 people are predicted to die from the disease.

About the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF)
The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. Together with its partners, the MMRF has created the only end-to-end solution in precision medicine and the single largest genomic dataset in all cancers. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts. Since its inception, the organization has raised over $400 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs. To learn more, visit www.themmrf.org.
