I was diagnosed in 2006. I was referred to Dr. Qu. He informed me that I had Multiple Myeloma. He wanted me to see a specialist at the Mayo Clinic. I was told it was at the “smoldering stage”. By the grace of God, I received no treatment until 2011. That is when I had a Stem Cell Transplant. I am blessed to have survived for 10 years. I have friends and family to support me. I have been fighting two deadly diseases for sixteen years. I also have amyloidosis. These are only cancer related illnesses. That’s why I tell my story. I am one of God’s miracles. I have some advice for anyone who will go through what I have in the future: cancer is frightening, but there are so many more options for treatment now. The one constant is God.
