Multiple Myeloma Awareness
Managing a rare cancer as a chronic condition
Join Ereka Vetrini as we go behind the mystery of the second most common blood cancer: Multiple myeloma.
We’ll learn about this rare disease and the progress that’s being made in treating it. We’ll hear from patients, advocates, and caregivers about their progression through clinical trials, as well as advice on managing symptoms. Then, we’ll meet up with survivor James Bond on a stop over in Cambridge to hear about his 23-year battle. Also, journalist Tom Brokaw, who is also a multiple myeloma patient, offers some snippets of advice from his latest book, “A Lucky Life Interrupted.”
