In Honor of Mary Jane Troth Funk

Created by Bobette Hilliard

Mary Jane Troth Funk

Please consider donating to MMRF so we may help others and honor the bravery of my Mom, who fought a long 12 year battle with Multiple Myeloma. We've always said she was tiny but she fought with grit and so much grace. Always smiling, she and her twin sister, my Aunt Joan, are the strongest women I've ever known.

Any amount you can spare will aid in the research necessary to continue to find a cure and will give other families more time with their loved ones. We are so fortunate Mom remained strong, not only with the availability of experimental treatments but through sheer determination. We were privileged to have shared so many life events, but more importantly, time with her. We don't take for granted what she went through and we know not everyone is as lucky as we were. We all miss her so much and think of her everyday, however this Christmas will be bittersweet. We will celebrate the twins 80th birthday with much love, support and hugs for Aunt Joan while Mom watches over us all; smiling, dancing, standing tall and free of pain.

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.
