Traveling Multiple Myeloma Road

I was diagnosed on November 10, 2017 with Multiple Myeloma Kappa 17p Stage 3, a rare type of cancer that causes uncontrolled production of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell in the bone marrow.

July 3, 2018 I was informed that I was in remission after being on Zometa, Velcade and Revlimid for 9 months. Next week I find out what maintenance I will be on.

This has been for me a tough positive road I had to travel and look forward to traveling to the end.
