    Greg, I don't know how other members feel, but I'm getting tired of receiving request to take part in a survey. The biggest issue I have is always a series of questions to see if you qualified. So far, I have only qualified for one survey. If I go through all the time and effort to fill out the questions, I would really like to know why I don't qualify for a survey. On several occasions i have emailed the sponsor of a survey but no one has ever responded back.
    More than that, I feel that this is a discussion board for people with cancer. To have someone send me an email for any other reason amounts to having my information given to a marketing firm. I signed up to receive a digest of activity sent once a day and to be notified if someone responds to a post.
    If this practice is to continue you really need to give us an option to opt out of these surveys.

    Welcome to our great family! I was born and raised in the Twin Cities and now live in Milwaukee. So sorry that you have this terrible disease but glad you found this site. Don't take this journey alone. Any questions or concerns you have please post them.
    I was diagnosed in 2011 and have gone through chemo and SCT in 2012. Three years later I go in every two months for labs and keep being told my proteins are high and it's only a matter of time before I have to repeat everything. Some people make it 5 to 7 years while others make it only a year. My point? Because I understand what I am up against I am ok with that.
