Thank you for supporting our Myeloma Matadors Team in this year's annual Ottawa-Gatineau Myeloma Walk ...Steps to a Cure in support Multiple Myeloma (MM) research.
It’s been almost seven years since I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in December 2012 and I continue to do well on my current drug protocol with relatively few side effects. I am one of the fortunate ones! And while a cure has not yet been found, the development and availability of new more effective drugs is encouraging and will hopefully ensure that my current level of remission is sustainable at least for the immediate future.
Supporting research and raising awareness of the disease remains critical.
This year our Walk is supporting the expansion of the Ottawa General Hospital’s Car-T Cell program to treat patients with multiple myeloma. Car-T therapy is an exciting new immune treatment for patients with blood cancers, that also has the potential to eventually treat solid tumour cancers. A worthwhile investment for all cancer patients!
