The Walk of Champions is the London and District Myeloma Support Group’s major annual fundraiser. The event has raised $270,000 for Myeloma Research to date. All the proceeds of this year’s event will go to the London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) for Myeloma Research. ALL proceeds are used to fund clinical trials of new myeloma drug therapies which are vitally important for all myeloma patients. For myeloma patients who have run the course of the standard approved treatments access to a clinical trial offers a lifeline. It also allows access to drugs that otherwise would not be available in Canada and/or that the costs would be prohibitive. All the present major drug therapies including Velcade, Revlimid, Pomalyst came through the clinical trial process. All myeloma patients should donate to this cause. It is a case of patients helping patients. We cannot make legitimate pleas to others if first we do not do everything to help ourselves.
