Yesterday I provided you with a link to a site on http://www.mymultiplemyeloma.com/, where patients and/or caregivers can access video footage of other patients, all discussing how they live with their cancer.
Today I would like to share a link to a webinar I conducted late last year with Dr. James Berenson in Los Angeles:
The webinar still hasn’t been released, so you will have to sign-in in order to “see the show.”
This twenty minute interview covers the role bisphosphonates play in helping keep a multiple myeloma survivor’s bones strong.
Have fun watching me squirm, as I try to act natural, working under the hot lights on a warm, Southern California afternoon.
The company which manufacturers the bisphosphonate, Zometa, helped fund the production. In the spirit of full disclosure, you should know that I have used Zometa in the past. Currently, I take another bisphosphonate, Aredia, every three months or so.
Dr. Berenson is working closely with Novartis on several studies, including one which shows Zometa may actually inhibit the growth of bone lesions caused by multiple myeloma. Our expenses for the project were paid for by WEGO Health. WEGO Health also made a contribution to Help With Cancer.org on behalf of my wife and me for helping them in Los Angeles.
I think we covered some important topics during our interview. I know I learned a lot!
So take a look and let me know what you think. Please, be kind!
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
