Sad News: One of My Multiple Myeloma Heroes, Geraldine Ferraro, Has Died

Most people know Geraldine Ferraro as the first woman to run for vice president with a major party.  But I think of her first as a long term multiple myeloma survivor.  She was inspirational for me even before my diagnosis almost four years ago. 

I remember watching her ten years ago, cheerfully hooked-up to her IV, receiving chemotherapy.  I now know that was Velcade.  She was one of the first patients to use it–and it worked very well.

You can find a link to a msnbc.com new story about her death on MyelomaNews.com.  That is where I would customarily post a story like this.  But Geraldine Ferraro was my hero.  I felt I needed to share more.
Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
