Sarah's Story

Our daughter, Sarah, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer, in 2005 at the age of 22. This was a world that none of us was familiar with, and it was a frightening time. Fortunately, Sarah responded well to her treatment and is currently in remission.
 
But remission is not a cure, and there is a high rate of recurrence. The good news is that research is advancing treatments rapidly and there are exciting research possibilities. Just since 2005, survival rates have doubled from 2-4 years to 4-10 years. The next generation of treatments is in development, but funding is desperately needed to move those treatments through the research stage and make them available to patients.
 
So, Sarah, her sister Jessica, and many other caring family members and friends joined us in creating MMORE, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to raising awareness and raising funds through fun and inspiring community events.

Our mission — our deep commitment — is to support multiple myeloma research to discover new life-prolonging treatments, improve quality of life for myeloma patients, and ultimately to find a cure, not just for Sarah but for all multiple myeloma patients.
