Geraldine Ferraro Passes Away Due To Multiple Myeloma.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is reacting to the loss of Geraldine Ferraro (1935-2011), a Member of the MMRF Honorary Board of Directors and a dear friend.

Ferraro passed away today from complications of multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer.

“Geraldine Ferraro was a true trailblazer, an inspiration to many, an incredible advocate for cancer research, and a very dear friend. She will be sadly missed, never far from our hearts, and fondly remembered for her incredible legacy and the extraordinary woman who she was. We pray that her family finds comfort and peace during this sorrowful time,” said Kathy Giusti, Founder and CEO of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, and a patient with multiple myeloma.

Ferraro is survived by her spouse John Zaccaro and her children Donna, 48, John Jr., 46 and Laura, 44.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Ms Ferraro several times during the days the MMRF used to sponsor the patient lobbying sessions on Capital Hill. I miss those. She was an inspiring person on so many different levels. I’d like to learn more about the series of specific events that led to her death. This lady was extremely well informed, had access to the best treatments available anywhere. What mis-step occurred? What, in hindsight, could/should have been done differently. It would be helpful to have more details.
