Jenny Ahlstrom received a call this week from a grateful patient who wishes to remain anonymous.
The patient told Jenny that he would match every dollar donated - from now until the end of the year - up to $50,000 in support of 50 days to $500K for myeloma research - HealthTree’s end-of-year fundraising campaign.
The donor was so impressed with HealthTree’s model and culture of innovation.
“HealthTree has a mission to accelerate cures for myeloma by building patient trust through education and community and supporting research through data aggregation. I love the idea that HealthTree supports patients' education and supports researchers with data. HealthTree runs like a business with two clients - patients and researchers - with one mission - cures.”
“HealthTree is incredibly grateful for this generous donor who knows that our work must be funded to accelerate cures for myeloma. Researchers need data, and HealthTree’s Cure Hub is built to support researchers,” says Jenny Ahlstrom.
Starting a holiday fundraising page is a great way to involve your friends and family in finding myeloma cures.
Double your donation and your impact by taking advantage of this incredible match.
The $50,000 match starts on, Wednesday, December 6th, and runs through the end of the year. We are extremely grateful to those who have already donated to this important cause. We're making a difference!
