Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) was founded in 1998 by identical twin sisters Kathy Giusti and Karen Andrews shortly following Kathy’s diagnosis with multiple myeloma. The mission of the MMRF is to urgently and aggressively fund research that will lead to the development of new treatments for multiple myeloma. The MMRF is one of the most effective and efficient organizations of its kind, as evidenced by our exceptional accreditations. In 2007, nearly 93% of every dollar of revenue raised was directed toward myeloma research and related educational programs. The MMRF’s approach, with a focus on speed, innovation, and results, is widely recognized across the medical and scientific communities, as well as by several prominent publications, as an optimal model to accelerate medical research and drug development across various cancers and diseases.
