In Tribute of Francis Keane

Created by Keane Family

Francis Keane

Frank "Bud" Keane has been described as someone who lit up the room, who was always there for you and someone who went out of his way for everyone.

He was diagnosed in late 2004 when there was a very low 5 year survival rate. With new research and treatment options available he was able to welcome four grandchildren into his life, take countless vacations and went on to enjoy 14 more years. He brought great smiles and laughs to all who were lucky enough to cross his path.

His humor and love of a good time will never be forgotten.

His family asks all that knew him to remember all the great memories and stories..... relive them.....share them..... and smile!




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


About the MMRF:
A pioneer in precision medicine, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) seeks to find a cure for all multiple myeloma patients by relentlessly pursuing innovations that accelerate the development of precision treatments for cancer. 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 has created the business model around cancer—from data to analytics to the clinic. The MMRF identifies barriers and then finds the solutions to overcome them, bringing in the best partners and aligning incentives in the industry to drive better outcomes for patients. Since its inception, the organization has collected thousands of samples and tissues, opened nearly 100 trials, helped bring 10 FDA-approved therapies to market, and built CoMMpass, the single largest genomic dataset for any cancer. Today, the MMRF is building on its legacy in genomics and is expanding into immune-oncology, as the combination of these two fields will be critical to making precision medicine possible for all patients. The MMRF has raised nearly $500 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs. To learn more, visit themmrf.org.
