In Honor of William C. Hynes

Created by Mary Kavanagh Hynes

William C. Hynes

Help us honor Bill while making a difference in multiple myeloma research. On Saturday, May 12, 2018 Tim and Cat will celebrate their dad on his birthday by running the Bridgehampton Half Marathon. Bill fought a long and courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma and kidney disease. We also know other families who have been touched by this awful disease. Our hope is that we can help advance research, and that one day in the very near future, there will be a cure for MM, and all cancers!

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.
