In Honor of John Joseph Schmelz “Joe”

Created by Christy Price

John Joseph Schmelz “Joe”

Dad was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2012. There isn't a cure for MM, and I'm hoping that someday there will be. No one should have to suffer with such a debilitating disease. This disease robbed him of being able to do the things he loved. We will all remember him loving the outdoors and his farm. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to help find a cure.

Help us honor Joe while making a difference in myeloma research.

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.
