Throwing Bones
Kenny Capps, founder of Throwing Bones, used his inspiring story and took action to help make a difference in more people’s lives and the blood cancer community.“As a runner with bone lesions throughout my body, two compression fractures, and still undergoing maintenance chemotherapy, I am aware of the high quality of life that comes from a healthy and active lifestyle. Through our Keep Moving Forward initiative, we encourage patients to be active and we will be a resource for patients on improving their quality of life through education and resources.I’m proof and I will not fade away. I plan on being here as inspiration and as an advocate for all myeloma patients and those that care for them.”May we continue to educate and inspire.

What is Throwing Bones?

Throwing Bones works hard to make a difference in the blood cancer community. We do this by holding these six key values:

Wellness

Throwing Bones is committed to building global awareness amongst all healthcare providers and individuals living with cancer around the importance of purposeful movement as part of treatment and lifestyle.

Community

We value a diverse, global community built on partnerships with healthcare professionals, individuals living with blood cancer and all those inspired by the mission of the organization.

Persistence

We never give up. We keep moving forward, whether that means baby steps or small leaps, we persevere. We believe in progress not perfection. 

Achievement

When we keep moving forward and act in service to others, we believe anything is possible. 

Patient-Focused

We provide patient-centric programs and support backed by science and health research accessible to all individuals at any stage of treatment and we celebrate ALL impact.

Movement

Staying active and in movement is an under-prescribed and under-
valued treatment of blood cancers.

Throwing Bones works to educate, inspire and support individuals living with blood cancer to improve the quality of life through healthy and active lifestyles, during and after treatment.

How to make a change.

Through education, we can bring the dangers, treatments, and statistics of blood cancers to the forefront. 

Movement

Movement, fitness, and keeping up with personal health is one of the best ways to effectively fight blood cancers.

The more who know about blood cancers, the better we can fight it. With your commitment and donations, anything is possible.

Differences we've made.

Blood cancers do not discriminate in who receives a diagnosis with children and adults of all ages and abilities on this cancer journey. Throwing Bones is proud to have supporters across communities nationwide and experts throughout the medical field who advocate for our work and our vision for movement to be an accepted and celebrated part of therapy for people living with blood cancer.
