On a chilly November 21st morning, the Rx Plus Charityworks team joined the sea of people who banned together at the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation 5K Walk For a Cure on Pier 25 in New York City. We walked to raise funds for very valuable research. November was a great month for the fight against multiple myeloma. It was announced that the FDA approved three new multiple myeloma medications. The money raised goes toward clinical trials and research that bring continued growth and progress against this form of cancer. Patients and customers of Rx Plus Pharmacy along with family and friends all donated to this event and should all be very proud of the efforts made to eradicate this disease which effects so many.

Josephine is the Girl Scout Troop Leader for the Bayside, New York Girl Scouts and invited Rx Plus Pharmacy to come down to present the girls with their baking badge. Thank you Ms. Josephine LaTempa for taking the time to reach out to us and inviting us to share this very special event with your Girl Scout Troop. “My daughter was having an issue with her medication. I took the prescription to my usual chain pharmacy and was told the copay would be $175 dollars. I just couldn’t afford that. As much as I wanted the medication for my daughter, there was no way a single mother working part time could spend that. I called the dermatologist and at this point I was going back and forth on the phone and to the pharmacy. I was frustrated and needed help. The doctor suggested Rx Plus Pharmacy. After contacting Rx Plus Pharmacy, I was finally able to get a medication I needed for my daughter. I felt compelled to write because I just wanted to thank you for your kindness and professionalism in helping with filling my daughter’s prescription. This was the first I’ve used your pharmacy and everyone I spoke to on the phone, down to the gentleman who delivered the prescription to me were so very kind. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!! -Josephine LaTempa, Bayside, NY
Rx Plus Pharmacy participated in the Art of Love Benefit & Gala for Multiple Myeloma Research. Although, there is no cure yet, the huge successes the MMRF have had over the past seventeen years have had a huge impact on the lifespan of patients who suffer from this form of cancer. The goal is to support this research and further the progression this foundation is having on the lives of patients and families of Multiple Myeloma sufferers. To help fund these endeavors, Rx Plus Pharmacy participated in the Art of Love Exhibition and Benefit on March 19, 2015. The hopes of this event is to bring awareness and education about this form of cancer with proceeds donated to the MMRF.

Each year, the first Sunday in May, tens of thousands of riders head out for a 40-mile cycling tour of the five boroughs of New York City on car-free roads. This event, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour, begins in Lower Manhattan, cruises through Central Park, then on into historic Harlem and the Bronx. After crossing into Queens and traversing Brooklyn, cyclists take over the highway before making the thrilling climb up — and down — the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. The ride finishes on Staten Island. The TD Five Boro Bike Tour is America’s largest cycling event and one of the most popular athletic events in the New York Tri-State area. Rx Plus Pharmacy had the pleasure of participating in this event raising funds toward the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. Customers, Pharmacists, Doctors, Staff, Friends and Family all contributed toward our fundraising goals. It was a success!
