Total Therapy a possible cure?

Posted on February 28 2015 | 476 views

My good friend, Gary Petersen, recently returned from his annual visit to UAMS in Arkansas with a clean bill of health.  He’s not far from being a decade myeloma free.  I have written several times, asking why more newly diagnosed patients aren’t encouraged to try Total Therapy.  The upside is literally off-the-charts.  Gary’s remarkable run is a real world example of how well some patients respond.

Panobinostat opens to mixed reviews

Posted on February 26 2015 | 247 views

Panobinostat three days in a row?  Have your eyes glazed over yet?  I understand some of you aren’t interested in drug development details.  But mixed reviews or not, FDA approval of panobinostat is a big deal.

I promised an update on yesterday’s surprise FDA approval of panobinostat.  I hope the controversial drug works better than it’s new trade name: Farydak.  Who the heck came up with that?

The FDA is considering a radical new, streamlined approach to granting access to experimental drugs.  For those of us that desperately need more myeloma treatment options, I can’t imagine better news.

Wednesday I drove back to Tampa to visit my old support group, and promote my Beach Party in March.  A dozen or so members plan to party with us!  As I closed my remarks, someone in the group asked me this: “Why do you need fly all the way to Iowa for a second opinion?  You have two good specialists right here (in Florida).”

POW! Pom doing a number on my mind!

Posted on February 18 2015 | 623 views

BAM!  POW!  What day is it again?  I felt dazed, confused and forgetful a few cycles into my initial pomalidomide therapy.  Reminding me that pomalidomide (Pomalyst) is much more potent than Revlimid, Dr. Roy suggested we cut the dose back to 3 mg.  That helped for the first couple of months.  But the last few days I’ve noticed I’m really “out of it” again.  And last night things got really bad.

Reaching patients in need can be challenging

Posted on February 14 2015 | 310 views

Wednesday I promised to “write about the challenges facing us as we try to get important, sometimes life saving information out to those that can use it most.”  The quality of information shared at these meetings was invaluable. Problem is, we were singing to the choir! Most in attendance didn’t need the information nearly as much as so many that weren’t there. The question remains: If knowledge is power, how do we get it to those that need it but don’t attend meetings or have access to a computer?

Today is my 59th birthday.  Considering the Mayo Clinic specialist that admitted me said the median life expectancy for a Stage 2, multiple myeloma patient my age (with such extensive bone damage) was a short 43 months, I’m ecstatic to still be around!
