My husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in July 2017. Never sick a day in his life it came as quite a shock to us. Undergoing chemo and a stem cell transplant we are blessed to be celebrating his one year re-birthday November 29, 2018. We'll always remember that day when the transplant team came in and prayed with us before re-infusing his stem cells to bring his immune system back to life after a grueling round of high-dose chemotherapy. Today he is on maintenance therapy, back to normal and painting again. God truly blessed us with wonderful doctors, family, friends and a wonderful church family who supported us during that time and still does. We're very grateful!
If you can, help me honor my loved one while making a difference in myeloma research. It's so important.
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), along with its research and medical industry partners, has fueled more studies, initiated more trials, developed more treatments, introduced more medicines, and have had a far greater impact than any other organization on myeloma. While the MMRF has made enormous progress, they still have much to do and cannot continue to do great research without your support.
Please consider joining me to fight multiple myeloma. Together we can make a difference.
