#44: Kathy Giusti, Founder, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF)
2 days ago
In 1996, Kathy Giusti was a business executive with a one-year-old daughter at the peak of her career when she was given a death sentence. She was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare and fatal cancer, and told she had three years to live. Determined to live long enough so her daughter would remember her, Giusti quit her job and founded the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), a non-profit research organization, with her twin sister. Over 20 years later, she is in remission and under her leadership, the MMRF has driven 10 new approved therapies, tripling patient lifespans. And thanks to Giusti, there has been more progress in multiple myeloma than any other cancer in recent history. Now she also serves as the co-chair of the Harvard Business School Kraft Precision Medicine Accelerator where she is fighting all cancers and changing the world of medicine forever.
