In Support of Jessica Axelrod

Created by Matt Davis

Jessica Axelrod

Welcome family, co-workers and friends of the Axelrod family.

This donation site has been established as an impactful way to help support Jessica in her fight with cancer by gathering funds, so that we can make a difference in myeloma research. Please consider supporting this initiative with a donation of any size, while also leaving a message of support if you would like.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is the world largest private funder of multiple myeloma research This organization, along with its research and medical industry partners, has had a far greater impact than any other organization on myeloma. They have done this by fueling more studies, initiating more trials and also developing more treatments. 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.
