In Honor of Denise Filo

Created by Bruce Goldstein

Denise Filo

Help us honor Denise Filo while making a difference in myeloma research.

Denise was an amazing, beautiful, fearless, strong and courageous woman who fought this horrible disease so hard and for so long, and did so without one complaint. We are all blessed to have been able to have her in our lives.

She was the most amazing Mom, Wife, and Mema and although she is gone and our hearts are broken, her beautiful spirit and love for life lives on forever.

Our hope is that by raising money for the MM Research Foundation, we can play a part in helping cure this horrible disease and ensure others do not have to go through this painful experience of losing a loved one.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), along with its research and medical industry partners, has fueled more studies, initiated more trials, developed more treatments, introduced more medicines, and have had a far greater impact than any other organization on myeloma. While the MMRF has made enormous progress, they still have much to do and cannot continue to do great research without your support.

Please consider joining me to fight multiple myeloma. Together we can make a difference.

About the MMRF:
The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts.  Since its inception, the organization has raised over $330 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs.
