In Honor of Brad Tracey

Brad Tracey

Help honor Brad one 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.

BRAD’S STORY
Brad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in August 1996 at the age of just 35 years old. Loved by so many around the world, Brad lost his brave battle on September 18, 2017.

During his 21-year fight, Brad always focused on staying positive and how he could help others feel better. He ran five marathons, traveled the world for work, and always had a game face on. His big, beautiful smile could light up the darkest room. He was so brave and so positive that many people never even knew he was sick - despite two stem cell transplants, multiple rounds of clinical trials, multiple rounds of chemotherapy, multiple rounds of radiation, and even complete paralysis for the last two months of his life. Through it all, Brad connected with all those he met as he was genuinely interested in others. Until the very end, he was positive, brave and concerned for others. He is sorely missed, but celebrated by all of us who love him.

Tremendous gratitude for the doctors, nurses, therapists, and staff at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weil Cornell Medical Center. Their tireless efforts gave us many good years and always a shared sense of hope.

Please consider joining me to fight multiple myeloma. Together we can make a difference.

Brad Tracey was one of the best people I have ever known. He and I met in our first jobs out of college, at Procter and Gamble. We made a whopping 21,000 per year and had a per diem of $20 per day for food AND hotels if you can believe that with 100 percent travel being "shelf monkeys" doing "re-sets" in grocery stores for O & G products. It was ridiculous but we kept each other sane and would get together on weekends in Richmond, VA or Charlotte. Brad had never been down South before. We spent many hours together and a few late nights whenever possible. We lost touch for over 25 years but a few years back I found him on LinkedIn and we began to text each other and got to meet Dee in NYC and I came up to support during his illness. He was one tough Son of a Gun w a wicked sense of humor. He had a Great Marriage and a successful career as he was a hard worker and genuine. It was a pleasure to have him in my life and I thought the world of him. He was Grace personified.
