Time Is a Non-Renewable Resource

I have had the pleasure and privilege of being part of Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma from the beginning.
While climbing Kilimanjaro was breathtaking, with its five ecosystems, hiking the Grand Canyon was awe-inspiring and majestic. Next week, we will climb Machu Picchu — a place that few humans have visited.
As amazing as these places are, it is the people on the Moving Mountains teams that inspire us and give us hope!
These teams are comprised of patients, caregivers, those that have lost loved ones to this disease and supporters. Never in my life have I seen so much dedication, hope, love, kindness, determination, laughter and inspiration.
While there have been great advances in recent years for myeloma treatment, we have a long way to go. This year, we will have raised close to $500,000 for the MMRF on these three climbs.
One day soon, we hope a cure is found for myeloma and all cancers. So as I prepare for Machu Picchu, I hope patients and caregivers will be given more time — that non-renewable resource!
