As a breast cancer survivor with 5 years remission, it was heartbreaking to find out that Marcia is battling cancer once again. What started as stomach pains and then abnormal blood work, turned into something much more serious. After being admitted to North Shore University Hospital with worsening symptoms, we discovered that she had a rare blood cancer. Currently, her diagnosis is IgM Multiple Myeloma. We are very grateful for the support, but it is becoming overwhelming for us to respond to everyone. We've therefore created this CaringBridge site to keep friends and family updated. Please continue to check this site, as it will be updated daily. You can also send her some wishes and we will read them to her. Thank you all and just know that my mom and our entire family appreciates your words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Thank you and Marcia loves you all!
