Michael Halama

Help us honor our loved 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.

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.

Michael was a wonderful to me, our running joke he started was he was my "favorite cousin". Such great memories in my heart- summers at Brady's Run, the adult versus kid table at holidays, family weddings, introducing the next generation to his stories that went on and on without an end- I learned from him - tell people you love them every chance you get, which he did often...

In Memory of Mike Halama
24. Charles Sylak, Jr.
Mrs. Halama, Dave and Family, I was so saddened to learn of Michael's passing. I was so fortunate to get to know Mike and Dave when we engaged them for work at Shasta beginning in the late 1970's. As a family business, I felt that we sort of grew up with Mike and Dave. Throughout the years, there were not many weeks that they weren't doing some sort of work in our operation. They were like part of the family. I've rarely met anyone with the grace and compassion of Mike. Smart, engaging and with a trademark big smile that could turn a bad day better, I will always remember Mike fondly. You have my heartfelt sympathy on your loss. I hope you find comfort in Mike's life well-lived, now at peaceful rest. Charlie Sylak
