Rudy was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma ( and AL Amyloidosis (In AL amyloidosis, the light chain proteins are misshapen and there are too many of them. These are deposited in tissues and can damage one or more organs. The heart, kidneys, nerves, and gastrointestinal system are the most common organs affected. Because AL amyloidosis is associated with the overproduction of plasma cell proteins, it is linked to multiple myeloma.) in November 2021. He started Chemotherapy on "Black Friday"  the day after Thanksgiving.  He has responded well with the Chemo, but now we start a new journey in his care with a Bone Marrow  transplant. This journey will begin on 8 June 2022.  We will be temporally living in Seattle near Seattle Cancer Care  for 2-3 Months. Please Keep us in your thoughts and Prayers.
