In Memory of Susan Paone

Susan Paone

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.

My mom went through great pain trying to fight this cancer. It wasn't the cancer that got her, but it was a side effect in the treatment that caused her to not be able to sustain her life any longer. This is my why I really want to take part in finding better treatments and medicines to fight multiple myeloma. I really do not want any other families to go through what our family has gone through with the loss of my mom.
She was a beautiful and cheerful person, always making everyone in the room laugh! You could always count on Susan for a good laugh. She was also known for wearing many bangles on each arm, so you could hear her down the hallway with her bangles clanging together. She always made the room so bright.
Even the littlest help will go a long way to help fight this disease and have better options for better treatments!

Together with its partners, the MMRF has created the only end-to-end solution in precision medicine and the single largest genomic dataset in all cancers.
