I’m part of an important broadcast Monday evening. Myeloma specialist, Dr. Ola Landgren, has been too busy to do interviews since moving his practice to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He’s making an exception of us. The topic: Can focusing on high risk myeloma help us find a cure? Remember, anyone who’s relapsed is technically considered to be high risk, so this applies to too many of us.
Gary Petersen, Jack Aiello and Cindy Chmielewski will be joining me on the broadcast, produced by what is now called Cure Talks.
I’ve been doing broadcasts like these for years; remember my interview with baseball great, Don Baylor?
Like it or not, the world we live in is changing nonstop, especially online. In the past I would post a phone number and you would call in. Now things will be more intimate. The company sponsoring Cure Talks has changed things up. Now you register to listen live by giving your email. I guess I’m OK with it. If you aren’t–or listening at 5 PM Monday night isn’t convenient–I should be able to get a transcript and/or broadcast recording for later.
I’m anxious to ask Dr. Landgren about the potential of T cell therapies. I know he approves of the two T cell research projects that CrowdCare Foundation is backing; Dr. Landgren is on our science committee. Dr. Landgren’s experience working for the NIH gives him a unique perspective. He knows so much about clinical trials and what’s new in the pipeline.
Here’s the link to register:
Tomorrow I’m continuing my series about ways to combat peripheral neuropathy. Mine is bad one day, not so bad the next. Weird. I haven’t figured out why one day is better or worse than the next. Today was a pretty good day. I’ll take it!
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
