Hi Keep Pounding Rob team!!
A quick update, and then on to some EXCITING news!!!
Rob had a great monthly report from Levine today! His cancer remains inactive. He will have a lung scan next week, as a proactive approach to keep an eye on an area there. He’s continuing monthly IVIG infusions, labs, palliative care and oncology appointments.
Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers!!

On October 26th, 2019, Rob and I are participating in a walk to raise funds for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. (MMRF).
A brief explanation directly from the MMRF website of how amazing this organization is in the fight for a cure:
“The mission of the MMRF is to relentlessly pursue innovative means that accelerate the development of next-generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure. Nearly 90% of total budget goes directly to research and related programming. The MMRF has been awarded Charity Navigator’s coveted four star rating for 12 consecutive years, the highest designation for outstanding fiscal responsibility and exceptional efficiency. The MMRF has facilitated unprecedented accomplishments including helping to bring ten new drugs to market that are now standard therapies for patients with multiple myeloma and being used or explored as treatments for other cancers.”
We are excited to join other multiple myeloma fighters on October 26th!! If you’d like to participate in the walk with us, either in person or as a “virtual” walker, please visit Rob’s Keep Pounding walk page here:
All donations go directly to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
Thank you, Keep Pounding Rob team!!! We never dreamed Rob would be preparing to walk a 5K, and appreciate your thoughts and prayers that helped him get to this point!!
