I have recently been diagnosed with MM (December 2014) and am only beginning to learn about multiple myeloma and the treatment that goes with it.

Being only 47 years of age and a highly active person, work, golfing, bowling, softball and my life change on a dime. I was playing golf on June 25, 2012 and dove the ball on the fifteenth hole and dropped to my knees. Having had back problems before I thought I just tweak my back, […]

I started my battle with multiple myeloma (mm) March 9, 2009. In the beginning I started frontline treatments with newly released novel drugs and an old one. My doctor called them a cocktail.
