Education MMORE exists to support research and education related to multiple myeloma. Our organization was founded by the family of a patient who was diagnosed, then disappointed in the lack of reliable information about this condition.
   
  We're fighting cancer by funding research and we're committed to providing education and resources for information about the disease. We encourage you to review the materials found on this page or visit the Research Updates page for specific information about recent developments and breakthroughs related to multiple myeloma.
