Multiple Myeloma Support Groups Raise Awareness and Raise Funds For The Cure

The North Florida Multiple Myeloma Support Group had planned on doing a Mambo For Myeloma You Tube video, and our support group leader Anne found out that Takeda(the makers of Velcade) would contribute to the IMF research fund for each support group who put a Mambo video on You Tube.  The North Florida group took that to heart and put together the following video, and challenged the other  support groups to Mambo and contribute to the cure as well.
North Florida Myeloma Support Group Mambos to  “Back in Stringent CR”.

Funding for myeloma is one half of the average of funding of all cancers per life lost, and funding for all cancers continues to fall based on funding cuts to the National Institute of Health.  Funding keeps falling for myeloma research each year, and it can only be made up through the efforts like this and all other myeloma fund raising initiatives.  Mambo for Myeloma is one of the few which is supported by the IMF, MMRF, MMORE, and MCRI. These are all national myeloma organizations which are key to education, research, treatment, and assistance to the myeloma patient community. 

Good luck and may God Bless your Cancer Journey.   For more information on multiple myeloma survival rates and treatments CLICK HERE and you can follow me on twitter at: https://twitter.com/grpetersen1


Lyrics to “Back in Stringent CR”

I have Myeloma  what can that be?
Couldn’t sleep at all last night
Wondering what the future held for me
It gave this man a terrible fright

I want to be in stringent CR
and you don’t know how lucky you are, boy
to be in  stringent CR

Been in the hospital so long I know the place
Gee, it would be great to be back home
Melphalan, Dex, it seems like a never ending race
With myeloma I feel so all alone

I want to be in stringent CR
and you don’t know how lucky you are, boy
to be in stringent CR

Stem Cell Transplant really knocked me out
It leaves my senses behind
But when I hit sCR
And cure is  on my mind
Oh come on

I want to be in stringent CR
and you don’t know how lucky you are, boy
to be in stringent CR

Stem Cell Transplant really knocked me out
It leaves my senses behind
But when I hit sCR
And cure is  on my mind

So raise awareness and fund research find a cure
So raise awareness and fund research find a cure

I want to be in stringent CR
and you don’t know how lucky you are, boy
if you can just get into stringent CR

Oh just Mambo, Mambo, Mambo  for Myeloma,

Doooo,  Woooo,  Ohhhh
