Moving Mountains

Published on: 

We spoke with two members of the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma team.

Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma (MM4MM) is a collaboration to raise awareness and funds for myeloma research where patients, caregivers, doctors, nurses and loved ones take on challenging mountain climbs throughout the year. On this year’s domestic hike, a team of 20 explored the Havasu Falls region of the Grand Canyon.

In this week’s episode, we spoke with two climbers: Jamie Tinschert, who received a multiple myeloma diagnosis in June 2012, and Chris Seal, a marketing director for an oncology brand at Amgen — who also sponsored the Havasu Falls climb – about their experience and why the MM4MM treks are key to raising awareness for multiple myeloma.
