Welcome to Aida’s CaringBridge website. We’ve created it to keep friends and family updated, sharing news about her progress/health/life since her diagnosis of multiple myeloma in January. Multiple myeloma is the diagnosis when plasma cells turn cancerous and build up in the bone marrow, causing tumors. Eventually those tumors crowd out the bone marrow, weaken the bones, and cause stress fractures, fatigue, and a very weakened immune system. It’s a scary, painful, incurable disease—but very much manageable with chemo therapy, compassionate, dedicated care, and lots of loving support.
