It's been a great 2 years since I had my autologous stem-cell transplant at the Ottawa General Hospital in November 2017. The transplant provided very good results in reducing the amount of cancer cells in my marrow, but as this disease remains evasive, there remains a number of cancer cells.
I'm still on daily maintenance chemo to hold the cancer down at a low level where I remain asymptomatic (SMILE). But... eventually, this drug will lose it's efficacy and I will be up for my second stem-cell transplant. After this, I'll put on new drugs and treatments that will hopefully be more effective in battling the cancer than the current drugs that are used to treat Myeloma today.
This is where you come in..
In this annual event, I'm working to raise money in support of Myeloma Canada and The Ottawa Hospital by participating in the Ottawa-Gatineau Walk for Myeloma, Steps to a Cure!
