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.

Each week of the regular season you pick the winning team and apply confidence points which are based on how confident you are with each of your picks. For each correct pick, you get those confidence points. There are no point spreads, it’s just outright winner. The most points each week is the weekly winner. The top ten in total points at the end of the regular season will win. The amount paid out will be determined once the season begins and everyone has signed up.
It’s a $50 buy in for the season with money split 50/50 between the winners pool & the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation,
