A MESSAGE FROM DR. LOUZADA

ABOUT THE WALK OF CHAMPIONS
The Walk of Champions for Myeloma Cancer Research was started in 2009 by Myeloma patients Dan Childerhose and the late Keith Fleming, members of the London & District Myeloma Support Group Steering Committee living in the Dorchester area. They decided to organize a local walk to raise money for Myeloma clinical trials at the London Regional Cancer Program.
Each year, the Childerhose family, the Fleming family and the London and District Myeloma Support Group, along with the generous support of the community, work hard to ensure our annual Walk is a huge success. To date, the Walk of Champions has raised over $850,000 for Myeloma Cancer Research.
