My father and brother both had MM. My father contracted it in 1993 and passed away after 13 months. Those were the “bad old” days of treatment. My brother contracted it in 2002 and had 5 good years with good treatment at the Myeloma Institute in Little Rock. I now have “progressing mgus” and have had Bone Marrow biopsy results above 10 % twice. I am being treated with Zometa infusions for my low bone density. I am very optimistic that great doctors at Little Rock and the Mayo clinic will make this a chronic condition someday!
