I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on January 17, 2018.  I'd been having odd pains in my rib cage for a couple of months - felt like pulled muscles, but in unusual places.  On Friday, January 12 I went to the doctor, who did a chest x-ray.  It showed a mass in my lung.  That led to a CT scan which showed multiple tumors in my ribs and vertebrae.  Blood tests and a lung biopsy led to the diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma.  We are fortunate to live 2 hours away from one of the best treatment facilities in the world for that cancer - the Mayo clinic.  I've been treated by them from the beginning, including a three year study trial of a cutting edge medication.  The next step is a Bone Marrow Transplant, which will happen on the week of March 15, 2021
