In Loving Memory & Honor Of Ophire Jericho

Created by Daphna Rubin

Ophire Jericho

God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors. My brother Ophire Jericho was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in September 2008 and passed away peacefully on January 15th, 2020. He was incredibly brave; he fought long and hard for 11 years. Ophire endured chemo, radiation, 3 stem cell transplants, 6 clinical trials, 8 different drugs and emergency spinal cord compression surgery. He left no stone unturned and never gave up. He walked through Hell, came out the other side, and then headed back in.
Ophire was an inspiration and touched so many lives. He had a smile that could light up a room and his positive attitude was infectious. There are some who bring a light to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains. We will miss Ophire every day, however, we're grateful that he is finally at peace. He will always been on our minds and forever in our hearts. His spirit and memory will live on forever.

Please help us honor Ophire's life 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:
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 11 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.
