Laura lived filled with the love she gave to others. She was beloved, and her self-proclaimed nickname "Mia” aptly explains why. Mia means "Mine.” The way she gave to others made us each feel like she was mine. While she may not have realized this when choosing that name for her grandchildren to use, it is now clearly so perfect.
As a child, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend she touched our lives with love and acceptance. We were hers and she was "ours.”
Laura fought her battle with Multiple Myeloma with courage and grace, almost as if she wasn't facing a deadly cancer at all. Ultimately, she never gave up hope for a new successful treatment. Please join us in honoring Laura "Mia" Dudzinski while making a difference in myeloma research. Our hope is to help end this suffering for future generations.
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 us to fight multiple myeloma. Together we can make a difference.
