Dear Friends & Family,

As you probably have heard, Anthony was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma. Multiple Myeloma is a type of blood cancer formed by malignant plasma cells growing in the bone marrow where stem cells are generated. Myeloma often causes structural bone damage resulting in painful fractures or bone breaks like Anthony has experienced over the past two months prior to his cancer diagnosis. The initial fractures to his spine alerted the orthopedic doctor to run more tests, thereby saving his life and providing him the opportunity to fight this fight with the best of his ability. We developed this site to keep friends and family informed as Anthony fights this rare form of bone cancer! He is entering his second week of chemo infusions this week and our goal is to keep you, his beloved friends and family, informed along the way to minimize his time on the phone and keep him focused on his treatments, wellness and peace of mind. Thank you in advance for your prayers and well wishes. More updates to come.
