Music 4 Mom
Come to Music 4 Mom, a free piano concert to benefit Mom & raise awareness about multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. This will be the first of a series of performances.
This fundraiser was started in 2012 by Ellen Grammel and Teresa Meier who ran their first half-marathons to raise money for the IMF, after their father, Dr. Chris Meier, a family physician, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma at the age of 58 in the fall of 2009. Each year they have continued their efforts and have been joined by other family members, (including spouses and grandchildren), friends and members of the myeloma support group in Cincinnati. To date, over $17,000 has been raised. We appreciate your support for this event in raising money for the International Myeloma Foundation.
