Glenn was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in July, 2017. Very fortunately, he was diagnosed at Stage 1 . His treatment began with 4 months of chemotherapy that was intended to eliminate as many myeloma cells as possible before beginning a stem cell transplant . We are now at the transplant stage and are also fortunate to be in the capable and caring hands of the Bone Marrow Transplant team at the Puget Sound VA.

After harvesting stem cells about 10 days ago, Glenn’s body is being given a rest before he gets more chemo and his stem cells back. We will learn today when that will occur, but likely midweek next week.
