Dr. Mary Palmquist was a fellow Patient Ambassador, trained to speak to support groups and help other multiple myeloma patients and caregivers. Her husband and caregiver, David was an Ambassador as well.
Mary died this weekend from an unusually aggressive form of myeloma. Somehow, David gathered the strength to write a wonderful and detailed accounting of her final days: CaringBridge / marypalmquist / Welcome.
So many of us are doing well and living longer than expected. It is important to remember some of us are not so lucky. All of our thoughts and prayers should be with David and his family during this difficult time. Pat
