Remembering Elie Wiesel – Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) mourns the loss of our dear friend, inspiration and hero – holocaust survivor, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and multiple myeloma patient Elie Wiesel. Elie inspired generations with his teachings of peace, justice and human rights activism, and most recently inspired the multiple myeloma community with his perseverance and bravery. He fought multiple myeloma with the same determination that he fought injustice; we are deeply honored to have known him.

Elie shared so many wise thoughts, one of which we live by daily at the MMRF: “Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.” Last fall, the MMRF recognized his remarkable efforts with the MMRF Courage and Commitment Award. He was joined in receiving this honor by Marion, his wife of more than 45 years, and his son Elisha.

We send our thoughts and prayers and pledge our deepest support to his remarkable family – Marion, Elisha, Lynn and his beautiful grandchildren. You are in our hearts.
