Why We're Fundraising

In May of 2011 our family received news that has changed the way we live and think about our daily lives. Our dad, Edwin Searcy, informed us that he had been diagnosed with a form of blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma. Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells found in the bone marrow. Today, doctors are still unsure about the cause of Multiple Myeloma and there is no cure for it. For our family the journey has been an emotional rollercoaster. We have watched our father undergo an unsuccessful stem cell transplant and have supported him through various chemotherapy treatments. The most recent drug he was administered is called Velcade. This drug has been the only successful treatment our dad has received to date but, due to the high cost of the drug, access to the treatment is limited. Our dad has completed his first treatment cycle and is currently waiting to see what comes next. At some point in the future he will be a participant in clinical drug trials at Vancouver General Hospital. This means that he will receive promising new drugs in order to assist in Multiple Myeloma research. We have decided that it is time to take action. We are holding a Multiple Myeloma Fundraiser with all funds raised going to the Hematology Clinical Trials at Vancouver General Hospital in hopes of moving one step closer to a cure. We thank you for your love and support.
