I look at my story as more of a journey because it was in 1987 that Multiple Myeloma came into my life. It is hard for to believe that 27 years ago MM became a way of life for me, but the key word in this sentence is life. What I want to pass on to those beginning their journey is that you are very lucky as you have so many options, and you can fight using these options. I have been able to see science move forward with new drugs, research, transplants, and education of MM.
I was blessed to be given these 27 years, and to see the progress being made. Thanks to 3 transplants, help from the new drugs, and brilliant Doctors I am able to continue to live my life without any regret. May God allow you the same.
