In November of 2013, at the age of 36, my brother Matt, a healthy, energetic teacher and coach, husband, and father of 3, was hospitalized with his 4th case of pneumonia. These multiple pneumonias, we found out 3 days later, were the result of a diagnosis none of us were prepared to hear - multiple myeloma. In December, being the selfless, generous man Matt is, he began a clinical trial in order to help fight this disease, and to help others afflicted with myeloma. This chemotherapy alone could not halt the myeloma from progressing, and Matt endured a stem cell transplant in June of 2015. Today, he continues to battle multiple myeloma with chemo every other week.
Please help me raise awareness and funds for research to find a cure.
Multiple myeloma is a complex cancer of the bone marrow that attacks and destroys bone. You can read more about multiple myeloma at myeloma.org. You can help the IMF fund research that will lead to a cure, by attending or donating to A Mission for Matt.
