"As a scientist, I work in the lab (not with patients). So, my team and I never get to see the validation of our work. The opportunity to meet patients, to talk with them and then see that the work that we are is doing at the lab makes an impact … there are no words to describe how valuable this is! I’m inspired to work even harder… find drugs to cure this disease forever. And that’s the message that I’m telling my colleagues when I get back to work."
~ Karuppiah Kannan Lead Scientist, Takeda Oncology
"Those of us who have the privilege of working in an industry that creates medicines for patients with cancer need only look as far as these MM4MM patients for inspiration to keep doing our jobs to ensure that these drugs get created and are accessible to all."
~ Ryan Cohlhepp, Vice President, US Oncology Marketing, Takeda Oncology
