Studio Displays, an expert distributor of Nimlok® exhibit and display products and services recently participated in a fundraiser to create awareness and raise money for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF). Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells, usually found within bone marrow. According to the American Cancer Society, 30,770 new cases of this devastating illness will be diagnosed in 2018 alone. It is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable.
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation organizes 5Ks throughout the year and country to raise awareness and funds to help scientist learn more about this disease and how to cure it. Studio Displays had 22 staff participants in the walk, which took place on October 13 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Their contributions have helped the MMRF reach $3,195,065 so far in 2018. The foundation directs 90 percent of their total budget to research and related programming.
Studio Displays has a personal relationship with Multiple Myeloma, having lost their founder, Tom Pope, to the disease back in 2016.
