My Journey in Progress

Last updated: October 2022

Hi friends. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in December 2015. I underwent 27 treatments of radiation followed by four full rounds of chemo. I am still receiving maintenance chemotherapy every two weeks had my last treatment yesterday. My diagnosis still reads multiple myeloma not having achieved remission. One of my biggest problems now is pain. Severe back pain. I am working with primary care as well as oncology and pain management.

Still trying to stay positive and having this venue to share what I'm going through with people that get it really helps. It's really exhausting mentally, physically, and financially. I will fight with all I have as long as I have something to fight with. Thanks for listening.
