Multiple Myeloma is an incurable blood cancer. The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), based in Norwalk, CT raises money for medical research because this small cancer does not get much attention or $$ from the big pharmaceutical companies. Since MMRF was founded, life expectancy of Multiple Myeloma patients after diagnosis has been extended from 3 years to 7.5 years. 93% of all funds raised go directly to research.
