Abstract: The article focuses on social entrepreneur Kathy Giusti, who started the nonprofit organizations Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) and Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium. While she was working for pharmaceutical company Searle, she learned she had myeloma, which has no cure and would kill her in three to four years. The article describes her use of her personal network, including Searle copresident Alan Heller and her sister Karen Andrews, then a lawyer at subsidiary corporation Time Inc. It talks about several drugs that have proven effective in treating myeloma, including thalidomide and proteasome inhibitors.
