A Survival Story from Amy

Amy is one of my myeloma friends and fellow survivors. She is strong and one of the people I look to for motivation and inspiration. She was diagnosed in April 2011. One month before my diagnosis.  We met her and her family last summer at the Yankee game.  I might have told the story before of how at the Boston Marathon last year, her and her family were celebrating the one year rebirthday from her stem cell transplant. They were at the restaurant where an explosion happened. Her family was injured.  The following link is that story in Amy's words.
