Lessons learned from one of my first myeloma heroes

Posted on August 31 2014 | 270 views

What a nice surprise!  Last night I received an email from an old friend, Joan Liedl.  Joan was wife and caregiver to a good friend of mine, Loren, who passed away back in January of 2010.

Talk about an up-and-down day!  Today is our 27th anniversary.  It also kicks off the 2014 college football season, something that both Pattie and I are passionate about.

Yesterday was a game changer for me.   A reassuring visit from my guardian angel, then an exciting and energizing hour long, on-air conversation with myeloma patient and activist, Jenny Ahlstrom.

An angel on my shoulder

Posted on August 28 2014 | 547 views

I’m sure everyone is familiar with this old saying.  I could argue that all of you–so many loyal and caring readers–are my “angels.”  But today I experienced something mysterious and spiritual during radiation therapy.

I have written a number of times about counter-intuitive research results involving progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).  Here’s another key example.

MYELOMA FLASHBACK: Recovering from my SCT

What was I doing three years ago?  Recovering from an autologous (using my own cells) stem cell transplant at Moffitt Cancer Center.  Has it really been three years?

Have you experienced side effects from radiation therapy?

Posted on August 25 2014 | 429 views

I started radiation therapy today.  It took longer than session’s I’ve experienced in the past; something to do with getting the monster machine rotated from one hip to the other.

Dr. Bart Barlogie is a myeloma legend.  Love him or hate him, his unbridled obsession for finding a multiple myeloma cure has been relentless.

Marking time by my pillbox

I may have written before about how much I love my new, four row pillbox.  Room for the dozen of pills and capsules that I take morning, noon and before my evening meal.

Enthusiastic reader shines as myeloma activist

Posted on August 21 2014 | 664 views

Floridian Jenny Hack is a regular reader and member of the Jacksonville Multiple Myeloma support group.  I met her a number of years ago, and was happy to see her again at the meeting last week.  Jenny has become a focused and dedicated activist, working hard to help get oral chemotherapy meds paid for like IV chemotherapy drugs are, not as part of  more expensive drug plans.

It is so sad to hear that Arnie has passed away.  We met him briefly at your beach party, and I am sorry now that I didn’t take the time to visit longer.  I think back when I was first diagnosed, and I became somewhat familiar with the regulars who posted here almost five years ago now.  I wonder how man of those voices are silent now…

IP6 follow-up

Posted on August 15 2014 | 455 views

A few days ago I wrote a skeptical post about a supplement called IP6.  I have received a number of comments and emails supporting the use of IP6 since then.  I’m good with that.  It may or may not help slow the advance of multiple myeloma.

I was fortunate to be a guest at the multiple myeloma support group that meets monthly at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville last evening.  But it wasn’t my first visit.  Five years ago I drove across Florida to speak to the group and promote my first book, Living with Multiple Myeloma.

Is immunosupplement, IP6, the real deal?

Anyone familiar with a supplement called IP6?  A reader, Richard, swears it has stopped his myeloma in its tracks when other more conventional meds weren’t helping at all.
