Photography has been my hobby and my favorite thing to do.

In November of 2013, at the age of 36, my brother Matt, a healthy, energetic teacher and coach, husband, and father of 3, was hospitalized with his 4th case of pneumonia. These multiple pneumonias, we found out 3 days later, were the result of a diagnosis none of us were prepared to hear - multiple myeloma. In December, being the selfless, generous man Matt is, he began a clinical trial in order to help fight this disease, and to help others afflicted with myeloma. This chemotherapy alone could not halt the myeloma from progressing, and Matt endured a stem cell transplant in June of 2015. Today, he continues to battle multiple myeloma with chemo every other week.

In January 2020, I will be participating in the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend which partners with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fight blood cancers. I’ll be running a 10k and Half Marathon (19.3 miles) back-to-back in honor and support of all those people like my dad, who heard one word, and instantly had their life changed. The training and energy I will have to endure during my races will not come close in comparison to the fight that patients with MM go through every single day.

Hope for a Cure

This cancer has affected both of our lives in negative ways, which is why we have decided to make a difference. We are hoping to raise $10K in support of the International Myeloma Foundation for research to find a cure for multiple myeloma. In our efforts, we hope to help as much as we can to contribute to the fight against myeloma. It starts with us, with you, working together to make a difference.

Bicycle Mojave and Beyond

As I begin to plan this 2019 fundraising story for all of you, I am writing this on the days leading up to my 10-year anniversary of my Stem Cell Transplant. It was April 19, 2009 when I had the clean cells put back into me. I had my last maintenance therapies in early 2011 and that was only Zometa. I am one of the fortunate ones who made it to double digits after SCT and so this riding and supporting I do, is my way to give back to this community I never wanted to be a member of. So, here I am in 2019 leaving for the mid-west and east-coast to support Multiple Myeloma and cancer patients and care givers in Kansas. Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, New York and Ontario Canada.

Jack's Education Grant 2019

Jack is fundraising for myeloma education. His goal is to raise $50K that the IMF will use for an educational grant. Today most patients diagnosed with myeloma have still never heard of it and with more treatments available today but still no cure, education is even more important.

Mark Ho (BagYo) Working Toward a Cure

In 2017, while still with the Vet Center, he was diagnosed with 2 cancers, Multiple Myeloma and Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, with the VA and military linking both these cancers to his service in and out of country (burn Pits in Iraq and his job as an Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighter). As of 2018, BagYo has successfully put the Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma into remission, and continues to march on in the fight against Multiple Myeloma. His fight is still being documented via video logs and journals which are being released on Youtube. Having found a new voice and passion through music, and his current fight with cancer, BagYo has the opportunity to access a platform and empathy that many others are unable to. By all accounts, he appears to do so with confidence.
