I just received this e-mail in response to Sunday’s article, Research Targets Pleiotrophin In Promising Anti-Myeloma Therapy, about how the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research was working to develop a cure for multiple myeloma:
Just wanted to throw in my two cents worth. This is how I express our focus:
The Cure Myeloma Project is the center of our ‘project’ fundraising efforts. Those three words explain exactly what the plan is………….to cure myeloma!!
IMBCR (Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research) is a research driven non-profit that has a cure at its center. Extraordinary scientists such as Drs. Berenson, Chen and Li spend every day pursuing that goal.
Our challenge is clear and more than 95% of all dollars raised are committed to furthering our research.
Hope that this helps.
Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research
I have already committed the profits from my book, Living with Multiple Myeloma, to be split equally between the IMF, MMRF and LLS. So many places to invest our donated patient assistance and research dollars. Contributing to this group seems very efficient. Their scope is narrow and focused. But do you believe they are searching in the right direction? You can investigate this further by going to the IMBCR Website: http://www.imbcr.org/.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
