Zumba for Multiple Myeloma
My name is Sandi Hunsuckle, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in October of 2010. In June of 2011, I had a stem cell transplant at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. I am currently in complete remission However, many of my friends in my support group are not as blessed as I am. Multiple myeloma is a treatable cancer. However at this time there is no cure, but with continued support, it is very possible that we can turn this cancer from a fatal disease into a chronic disease such as diabetes. We are so close!
Art-on-the-Gogh
Art-on-the-Gogh is a fun and creative painting event that requires no previous painting experience. Molly Loch provides all of the supplies and instruction and walks the group step-by-step through the process of painting a picture. Participants follow along and each painting ends up with an individual flair. Space is limited so we ask that people register as soon as possible to lock in on a seat. And yes, you get to take your completed artwork home! The goal is to raise significant funds between now and March 31st, in support of Myeloma Awareness Month.

Ava & Cece's RACE TO BEAT MYELOMA
Our names are Ava and Cece Fainberg and we live in Chevy Chase, MD. On May 2, 2015, with our family and friends, we will host a walk & run to support the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF). Our grandfather, Benson Klein, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1998 (before we were born), and the IMF has been very near to our hearts ever since. Myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells, which are found in bone marrow. Among other symptoms, this disease can cause tumors in bones and can compromise the immune system.

Mambo for Myeloma
After the success of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, some very special myeloma patients and supporters got together to create a fun campaign designed around myeloma awareness. The goal was to make myeloma more well known around the globe, bringing communities together to fight for a cure. The #MamboforMyeloma initiative asks patients, caregivers, doctors, friends, family members, and groups to film themselves dancing and share a donation link for the cause. You don’t have to be an amazing dancer; the spirit is what is important. With #MamboforMyeloma, myeloma patients have the power to be seen and heard, initiating change and sharing their stories. The IMF supports #MamboforMyeloma and encourages you to share your photos and videos, as well as to donate here.
Zach's Bar Mitzvah Project
Zach is being Bar Mitzvahed on 2/21/15 and as part of his Bar Mitzvah, he is required to do a "Mitzvah Project." After discussing his many options, Zach chose to do a fund raiser to benefit the International Myeloma Foundation. He will be collecting recyclables and donate the money to aid in the research for people suffering with Multiple Myeloma; he is doing this in my honor.

If you prefer, or in addition to collecting recyclables, you may make a donation to support Zach’s project in support of the IMF and their wonderful work by clicking HERE. The project will end on 2/20/2015, so we only have eight weeks to make an impact.

VETERANS AGAINST MYELOMA (VAM)
Our combined efforts to continue our service through the Veterans Against Myeloma cause can help research and help us win the battle by finding a cure.
Bicycle Mojave...and Beyond!!!
Andy Sninsky keeps his bicycle wheels rolling to raise awareness of multiple myeloma. He is now in Northern California riding for himself as well as all blood cancer patients. September is blood cancer awareness month and I could not think of a more fun way to meet people and inform them of our situation.

You can follow my links and read about my current journey and donate to this good cause.
