Rodney C. Rickrode

Help us honor our loved one while making a difference in myeloma research. Rodney was diagnosed with this cancer in 2011 and was stage 3 from the beginning. He fought hard and long to live. His diagnoses was 5 years and he lived a little over 6 years... but his body was not strong and the cancer cells were taking over.. He passed away on Thanksgiving day 2017 with his family by his side..Please donate to find a cure for this cancer...

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.
