I’m raising money again in support of Myeloma Canada by participating in the virtual, walk anywhere, Multiple Myeloma March. As you may or may not know, my wife Tanya was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in May 2019 after feeling very run down and having rib pain ahead of our March Break Disney cruise. This is a common blood cancer for a 70 year old but very rare for an otherwise healthy 37 year old with no history of this. Unfortunately there is no cure. Tanya immediately started chemo and had her stem cell transplant at Princess Margaret in September 2019, one year ago!?! She has been very positive and fortunately has been feeling better and staying safe homeschooling our girls. Unforunately she is not yet in remission but stable and trending there with the help of maintenance chemo. Tanya is a special person with an amazing network of friends, family and colleagues that have really been there for her and us and I could not be more thankful - you know who you are! Tanya has also been a great advocate for herself and others with Multiple Myeloma and has connected with younger patients like herself from around the world. This walk really brought her strength and encouragement right before her stem cell transplant and I know it will do the same each year for us. Thank you again!
If you cannot make a donation, please consider joining Tanya's Tribe (our team) and come out for a walk with us or do so in spirit. By making a donation to me, you are helping to fund clinical research and to support advocacy for accelerated access to game-changing therapies for Canadian myeloma patients like Tanya.
