Stephen A. Caputo

Help us honor Stephen Caputo while making a difference in myeloma research:

Stephen A. Caputo 61, passed away August 18th surrounded by his loved ones after fighting a valiant battle with Multiple Myeloma.

He was a proud graduate of Saint John’s High School '75 and Worcester Poly Technic Institute '79, graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Steve’s career as a Sales Professional in the semi-conductor industry spanned forty plus years.

A passionate golfer, Steve was one of the founders of the Cape Cod Elite 8 Golf Classic, now in its thirty-third year. He took great pride spending many hours tending to the lawn and garden at his home, shooting the breeze with his neighbors, and forging many friendships along the way.

Steve was a foodie before the word foodie became popular. Always the life of the party, you could hear him enter a room long before you actually saw him. Gifted with a unique sense of candor, you always knew exactly where you stood with him. His greatest accomplishment was his commitment to his wife, Cathy, and raising their children to be loving, responsible, and educated young adults.

Steve was preceded in death by his father, Gaetano Caputo, and mother, Dora Caputo. He is survived by his wife Cathy, children Stephen, Cara, and Gina, brother Robert, godchildren, many nieces and nephews, and a close group of life-long friends.

The Caputo Family would like to thank the doctors and nurses of 6ICU at the UMASS Medical Center for their compassion and expertise in his care.

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.

About the MMRF:
A pioneer in precision medicine, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) seeks to find a cure for all multiple myeloma patients by relentlessly pursuing innovations that accelerate the development of precision treatments for cancer. 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 has created the business model around cancer—from data to analytics to the clinic. The MMRF identifies barriers and then finds the solutions to overcome them, bringing in the best partners and aligning incentives in the industry to drive better outcomes for patients. Since its inception, the organization has collected thousands of samples and tissues, opened nearly 100 trials, helped bring 10 FDA-approved therapies to market, and built CoMMpass, the single largest genomic dataset for any cancer. Today, the MMRF is building on its legacy in genomics and is expanding into immune-oncology, as the combination of these two fields will be critical to making precision medicine possible for all patients. The MMRF has raised nearly $500 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs. To learn more, visit
