Update 12/17: We reached our goal of $3,000 through the project. Thank you to all who have donated. We built this page not just to raise money but to have a place for comments, and those have meant so much to us. Now we'll turn it over to Kent and Debbie Wells and their team running a charity tennis tournament on Tim's behalf next month. Happy holidays, all. Tim would wish the same.
Update 11/28: Thanks again to all who have donated. We're almost at our goal of $3,000. There also will be a tennis tournament in Tim's name at the Army-Navy Country Club on Jan. 11. Glad to provide info to anyone interested.
Update 10/23: I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the support and donations in Tim's name. He used to play Scrabble with our kids every Thanksgiving, always beating them with $50 words until Annie upset him back in in 2005. We put the score sheet on the refrigerator until he comes back six months later, takes it down and says, "That shouldn't count. I didn't know I had multiple myeloma." Please share this page as much as you can. Here's a piece on Tim:
Help us honor Tim while making a difference in myeloma research. Tim battled multiple myeloma to a standoff for 12-1/2 years until his passing on October 14, 2018.
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.
