In Memory of Bob Douglass

Created by Liz Espinoza

Robert Douglass

Bob Douglass battled Multiple Myeloma courageously for over 8 years prior to passing away from the disease in April 2019. He was a fervent supporter of the MMRF from the time he was diagnosed in August of 2010. Bob passionately organized teams of walkers in both Chicago and Minnesota each fall to raise money for the MMRF. His dedication to the organization helped him to be recognized as the Spirit of Hope Recipient in Minneapolis in 2015. Thanks to the work of the MMRF, he was able to directly benefit from many of the treatments that were developed after his diagnosis. Unfortunately, his Myeloma progressed to the point where he was no longer responding to any of the available treatments and succumbed to the disease before a cure could be found.

Please honor Bob's memory by donating to this worthy organization. While a cure did not come in time for Bob, we are hopeful that through the work of the MMRF, a cure will come for others battling this terrible disease.
