Girls and Guys Day In supporting Myeloma Australia
Multiple Myeloma is a blood cancer that develops in the Bone Marrow. Each week 38 Australians are diagnosed with this cancer and approximately 27% of those will die within 18 months of diagnosis.
Myeloma Australia is the only Australian myeloma specific not-for-profit organisation.
They support, educate, inform, empower and bring hope to people who are living with myeloma, and their loved ones.
They also raise community awareness and understanding of myeloma; educate health professionals involved in the care and treatment of those living with myeloma; advocate for improved patient access to the latest treatments at affordable prices; and facilitate myeloma research in Australia.
I am holding a fundraising event on Sunday 15th October at the Mannum Community Club where there will be stalls, raffle, Lucky Envelopes etc with proceeds going to this cause.
