"Advances in the past decade have transformed the treatment of multiple myeloma, and doubled the overall survival of patients. [i] This extraordinary progress is unmatched in cancer care, but clearly more needs to be done if we are to realize the goal of making myeloma a chronic condition," said N. Anthony Coles, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Onyx Pharmaceuticals. "Onyx is committed to supporting continued progress through education, research and partnerships, and urges everyone who has been impacted to make their mark in the quest to conquer this devastating disease."

The Make Your Mark at the Multiple Myeloma Experience booth at ASH (#2049) will feature insights from healthcare professionals and patients on what progress means to them, and a digital pledge wall where visitors can pledge their personal commitment to continuing the momentum in multiple myeloma.  Those who are unable to attend the meeting will also be able to pledge their commitment and find out more about the experience by visiting www.makeyourmark-mm.com. Follow Make Your Mark on Twitter at @MakeYourMark_MM or by searching #MYMmm for updates from the meeting.
