I am fundraising in support of a rare, incurable cancer called Multiple Myeloma. All proceeds will support research and patient care at the IU Simon Cancer Center.
Miles for Myeloma 2017 will take place from September 15th - 16th!
Cyclists will travel nearly 100 miles to Muncie IN, before returning back to the start/finish line in Indianapolis. Once our group completes the ride, we will attend a Dinner & Education Symposium immediately following at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, where the finish line celebration is being held.
I am wife to a handsome husband, fundraiser and all around conqueror of Multiple Myeloma!
The goal is to raise awareness about this rare cancer and generate funding for research and enhanced patient care.
Each fall for over a decade, Dr. Abonour and his fellow Miles for Myeloma cyclists - a crew made up of myeloma researchers and medical caregivers, family members of patients and even a few patients themselves - set out on the annual Miles for Myeloma ride. The two-day cycling event gives myeloma patients and their loved ones the opportunity to conduct personalized fund-raising campaigns to generate awareness about the blood cancer and raise funding for IU research aimed at improving treatments for this rare disease.
Miles for Myeloma has raised more than $5million for IU multiple myeloma research and patient care since 2005. The work funded by these dollars is helping us better understand the disease and conduct clinical trials to explore new treatment options.
To help support patients affected by the disease today, Miles for Myeloma has broadened its scope and the effort will support both research at the IU Simon Cancer Center and enhanced patient care at IU Health. Myeloma is incurable, so research and enhanced care are our hope for the future.
Gifts to Miles for Myeloma support research at the IU School of Medicine via the IU Foundation and enhanced patient care via the IU Health Foundation. Gifts and donor information are shared with both foundations. If you prefer your information not be shared, please contact Lizzie Conkle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
