FJC, a foundation of philanthropic donor-advised funds and the Myeloma Research Foundation are the latest major donors to the "Cure Myeloma Project", an ongoing research initiative at the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research, (IMBCR), in Los Angeles, CA

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IMBCR's "Cure Myeloma Project" is the nation's foremost effort to find a cure for multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that resides in bone marrow. Led by premier scientists in the world of myeloma research, James R. Berenson, M.D., Haiming Chen, M.D., Ph.D. and Zhi-Wei Li, Ph.D., this multi-phase research project's overall goal is to specifically target myeloma cells while leaving surrounding healthy cells untouched.

Over the past five years, researchers and scientists at IMBCR have been responsible for creating many of the novel therapeutics currently used to extend the quality of life and lifespan of myeloma patients throughout the world.

About Multiple Myeloma and Blood Cancers: The American Cancer Society predicts that over 80,000 people are currently living with myeloma in the US and over 20,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Approximately 10,000 people die each year from multiple myeloma.
