On Friday April 4, 2014, Pete went to the doctor for pain he had been having in his left arm. He had been seeing the chiropractor for the last month for it as well and it continued to get worse. The doctor had an X-ray done and found that the bone was actually broken along with lytic lesions. The doctor then had a CT of the chest/abdomen/pelvis done and it showed multiple lytic lesions throughout the visualized bones. They suspected myeloma. Pete started seeing a hematologist at Mayo Clinic and confirmed that he does have Multiple Myeloma which has been explained to us as a blood cancer that attacks the bones. It is not curable but treatable. Treatments will include chemotherapy, possible radiation of certain areas, and stem cell transplants.
