The Cause

Cancer. It comes in different types that affect different organs but in the end this disease is the worst nightmare of our era. We are all familiar to the name, but there are so many different types of cancer that some of them do not get the attention needed. As a result, we have so little information on how to treat specific types of cancer.

Multiple Myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer and, sadly, has one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers. It was estimated that 26,850 new cases of Multiple Myeloma were diagnosed and 11,240 deaths occurred in 2015 alone.

In February 2017, a close family member to North American Standards (NAS) owners, Nick Heath, will be participating in the 2017 Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek in February 2017 to benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures!

The Fundraising Goal: Raise $20,000 USD for the MMRF!


How can you help?

Nick and Krysta have created a campaign to bring people in for this noble cause. They will be hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro in the name of lost loved ones to this disease. They will carry their picture up to the top and will have the name written on their back packs. 

You can make your donation here at the official website for MMRF.


Every donation counts!

Let’s help raise awareness and bring some light to everyone involved in this noble cause. 

Social media now days is the best way to communicate and we are working hard to get to as much people involved as we can. 

We can all help in different ways, please help us share this story.  Send this to your friends and family to raise awareness of this cause.  Who knows? Maybe we will be seeing you here in paradise next year!!


“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remember to turn on the light” – Albus Dumbledore
