Fox Valley, Meet Mission Myeloma

Our public announcement introducing Mission Myeloma, Inc. to the world

Fox Valley, Meet Mission Myeloma

Thursday, March 16, 2017

It’s official, Mission Myeloma, Inc. has arrived in the Fox Valley! And, we’re here to make a big impact and change lives. We’re here to show we care about myeloma patients and their familes, as well as help lighten the load of the journey.

Over the last few years, event organizers of Miles for Myeloma – Fox Valley walk/run have recognized the lack of local support and resources for multiple myeloma patients and their families within the Fox Valley region, as well as the entire state of Wisconsin.

Mission Myeloma, Inc.

As a result, we’ve established Mission Myeloma, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. This is our response to this need within our community. The mission statement of Mission Myeloma, Inc. is to show support to patients and their families affected by multiple myeloma and to fund research for a cure of this cancer. Effective immediately, any donation made to Mission Myeloma, Inc. is considered charitable and tax-deductible.

Proceeds generated from Mission Myeloma, Inc. events, such as Miles for Myeloma – Fox Valley, will be used to provide financial assistance (in the form of grants) and care packages to myeloma patients, as well as continuing funding research. By keeping funds local, Mission Myeloma, Inc. has the opportunity to benefit local community members. We’ll also be supporting a national effort to impact individuals internationally by continuing to support MMRF.

Miles for Myeloma – Fox Valley

The development of Mission Myeloma, Inc, has been made possible through the continued success and growth of Miles for Myeloma – Fox Valley walk/run in the past seven years (2010 – 2016), dedicated to honoring the legacy of Dr. Mark Chelsky. We will continue to celebrate his legacy with this event. Effective this year, a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to MMRF to support research, and the remaining funds will stay local to assist myeloma patients and their families. The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation continues to be supportive of our decision, as well as appreciative of our ongoing support of their research efforts.

Thank You for Your Support

We’re hopeful you have the same heightened enthusiasm for Mission Myeloma, Inc. as we do, and we appreciate your support in the upcoming months and years.

Join us on our MISSION

Every bit of time, energy, and awareness helps us march forward toward the end of myeloma. And until we get there, Mission Myeloma, Inc. will be there to lend a hand, offer support, and show we care. Join the mission by sharing the news with your family and friends, connecting with us on Facebook (, making a charitable donation to Mission Myeloma, and by participating in future Miles for Myeloma – Fox Valley walk/run events. Let’s do this, Wisconsin!
