Multiple Myeloma treatment has evolved over the years and there are many options to explore in treating this chronic illness. This month’s telephone educational and support program goal is to create a better understanding of the role played by bone marrow/stem cell transplant and minimal residual disease in treating multiple myeloma. This program will include ample time for questions and answers. The call will feature Dr. Stephanie Williams, Division Chief, Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, Spectrum Health Cancer Center. As well, Multiple Myeloma Journey Partner and survivor Barbara Hanson will share coping techniques and offer hope to all in sharing her experience.
