It's been a great couple of weeks as thousands of you have read, watched, posted and shared to promote multiple myeloma awareness. Does greater awareness mean better results? We say YES, IT DOES! In a few short days, this is what we've accomplished together:
For those of you who haven't yet done the challenges, we invite you to do them all before end of day Wednesday. Every action counts! Our final tally will be posted as soon as we get final approval from our sponsors.
Thanks to Brian Cummings, Jana Coley (@janacoley), Carol Lundwall, Susan Kearney Tackitt (@susatack), Lois Smit (@), Richard Hite, Michelle Maulguet and Randy Floyd. They win a Myeloma Crowd Ogio jacket. You are going to love this jacket - it's perfect to take anywhere!
We will announce the winners for the free Signal Genetics test and the two phone case reviews when we announce our final numbers. So stay tuned....
We are deeply grateful for the support from our main sponsor Takeda Oncology. Because of their involvement, we will donate the funds to our two MCRI projects, bringing new immunotherapies to the clinic for high-risk and ultimately all myeloma patients. We also appreciate the generosity of Signal Genetics and look forward to awarding their donated prize of a free genetics test!
