In spite of diseases like myeloma, life can be a beautiful ride - especially when you have the support of Dr. Abonour and Miles for Myeloma. Anyone can be part of our team to help us combine dollars, donors and distance toward the Myeloma Million.

More Info

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the multiple myeloma research and care team at the Melvin & Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center at IU Health never lost focus on their goals to better prevent, detect and treat this currently incurable disease. Our physicians and scientists remained steadfast, proving we could join our patients to adapt and overcome. Today, our research laboratories are all back up and running, our clinical trials remain robust and our commitment to the highest quality of patient care is paramount. Crucial support from donors like you ensured we had the resources–even in uncertain times–to continue our mission to make myeloma history.

Miles for Myeloma has raised more than $6.7 million since 2006. Thanks to donor support, our team, led by Dr. Rafat Abonour, is improving how myeloma is diagnosed, understanding how the disease behaves, and improving outcomes for patients. Dr. Abonour can see the day when there’s a cure for multiple myeloma. Where patients once had a grim prognosis, many now live with the disease for decades.

Thank you in advance for your support. Our patients and their families are the inspiration for every mile we cover together – and every dollar we invest in research and enhanced patient care.
