Laugh For Life: New York

Thank you!

The 2018 MMRF Laugh for Life was an incredible, inspirational and sold-out evening raising over $700,000 for multiple myeloma cancer research that enables the MMRF to continue its incredible momentum to advance breakthroughs in precision medicine and deliver effective new treatments that are extending the lives of cancer patients.

The event was host to numerous patients, their families and friends, esteemed myeloma doctors and their teams, researchers and pharmaceutical partners.

Special recognition to:

  • Bill McHugh, multiple myeloma patient and recipient of the evening’s MMRF Carol Goldschein Spirit of Hope Award presented by Celgene Corporation. Bill is the epitome of strength, compassion and friendship and a warrior for all cancer patients.
  • The fearless, passionate and driven event co-chairs, Alison Tress and Tina Rettig; and resolute and resilient Laugh for Life event founders, Sue Korn and Cindi Stern and co-chair emeritus, Sherri Lippman.
  • Master of Ceremonies, Brad Zimmerman, who continues to delight and deliver each year.
  • And of course, the headline comedian and storyteller, Mike Birbiglia for his witty and sidesplitting performance!

Please mark your calendars for next year’s event: Tuesday, May 7, 2019.
