In Honor of Paul Kleiter

Created by Sharon Kleiter

Paul Kleiter

Hi all,

Recently we lost our beloved husband, father, uncle, grandpa, and friend - Paul Michael Kleiter. In his final few years, he suffered from multiple myeloma and the pain was constant and unrelenting. While the happy memories with Paul will outlast any sad feelings, things were never the same once he was diagnosed with the disease. Our hope is that in the future, fewer people will have to experience the disease like Paul did. With this in mind, please help us honor Paul's memory while making a difference in myeloma research.

With a grateful heart,
Sharon Kleiter, wife
Erin Kahlert & Kirsten Gaa, daughters
