CURE MULTIPLE MYELOMA CORPORATION
The mission of Cure Multiple Myeloma Corporation (CMMC) is to help build a Metro Detroit myeloma community, which can support patients and caregivers and to help fund next generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend patients’ lives in pursuit of a cure. CMMC, a 501(c)(3), is the number one private funder of multiple myeloma research in the Detroit area.
Started in 2010, Wine & Dine in the D is a two-part evening that includes an educational panel discussion by prominent myeloma doctors, followed by a “Wine & Dine” gala, featuring delicious food and beverages from some of Detroit’s finest restaurants, a silent auction, live music and more. In 2019, with the support of our participating doctors and increased awareness of the event, approximately 400 patients, caregivers and key opinion leaders in the myeloma community attended Wine & Dine in the D. In 2020 we were unable to host an in-person event but instead held a very successful virtual panel discussion that was attended by over 200 individuals. We bring together specialists from around the country for the panel discussion and provide a platform for Metro Detroit patients to learn about groundbreaking new treatments and speak directly to these leading doctors.
This year we are moving back to an in-person format but will also include a virtual (and recorded) option for those who can’t attend the live evening. To still provide our multiple myeloma discussion and time for socializing, dining, and fun, we are splitting the event in two! All attendees must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated in order to attend.

These meetings are intimate gatherings of patients and caregivers and each features a multiple myeloma doctor to answer questions and provide important information. For 2021, all our discussions are virtual. We hope to be able to break bread in person soon and still keep a virtual component. All discussions are recorded. See link below.
