After a lifetime of relatively excellent health, in the spring of 2010 I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

               With the help of my physicians, family, and a few friends, I began to educate myself about the disease and its current treatments. I attended multiple myeloma seminars and workshops where I met with other patients, dedicated researchers, doctors, and concerned individuals diligently working in a variety of ways to overcome this illness and find a cure.

               During my own investigation, I became aware of the many advances that have been made in treating and understanding multiple myeloma over the past few years. When I was first diagnosed, the life expectancy of those diagnosed was only five years. Today, as a result of the diligent efforts of researchers and different organizations, sufferers of multiple myeloma now have substantially increased life expectancies. In my case, like many more people than ever before, the illness is currently in remission. I, along with many others, have been able to live life with renewed hope and vigor.

               The totality of the aforementioned circumstances has caused me to consider how I can contribute to the effort to prevent and eradicate Multiple Myeloma. I have decided to organize a walkathon to take place on November 1, 2015 in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, New

York in an effort to raise money for research in prevention, advancing treatment, and ultimately curing multiple myeloma.
