Newly diagnosed patients and their caregivers can learn a lot here at MMB, without scrolling through years of past posts.
Simply click-0n the NEW tab at the top of the page. There you’ll find my thoughts about what is most important for newbies to learn–and resources to learn more. Here’s the link:
Want to check out pictures from my stem cell transplant; the one I delayed for over four years?
I understand as well as anyone how tough and confusing the first few months following a multiple myeloma diagnosis can be. BUT THERE IS HOPE! For the vast majority of patients, things get better with time; at least for a few years.
The most important thing that any newly diagnosed patient and their caregiver(s) can do is speed up the learning curve. Learn what to expect, when and why–and how you and your doctors can work together to help live a longer and better life.
That’s what all of us here at MMB are dedicated to doing each and everyday.
