In Honor of James A. Cotturone

Created by Debra Cotturone-Warren

James A. Cotturone

Help us honor Jim Cotturone while making a difference in myeloma research.

Jim passed away at the age of 75 on February 6, 2018 in Gainsville, GA after a hard-fought, three year battle with multiple myeloma. Jim was the beloved husband of Laura and is survived by his two sons James Jr. (Jennifer), Mark (Michelle), daughter Debra (John) and six grandchildren. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and was so very loved by his friends and family. He will be missed.

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.

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.
