    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I could not walk and was told by a back doctor I needed to have a disc replaced. Then after a different type of MRI I was told I had MM.

    To take part in clinical trial or not

    Decision Point

    After contacting a friend of a cousin who is a myeloma expert, I learned of several options at different hospitals. The first one I chose was at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, and she told me of a clinical trial she strongly recommended. Luckily it was very successful.
