Getting My Learning On

Don't get me wrong, myeloma and cancer suck. But I will say that since being diagnosed I've had the chance to meet some of the most passionate, caring and inspiring individuals. On Kilimanjaro I was with 5 other patients who are not letting the disease slow them down. And earlier this week I was in Boston to spend time with patients and caregivers who are so smart about the disease and so dedicated to supporting and helping others impacted by myeloma. I also got a chance to tour the facilities of Takeda Oncology where they make velcade and are working on finding new and better treatments.  I used to feel so out of place and not smart when I was with these folks.  But for the first time, I feel like I kind of understand what they're talking about. I've got a ways to go, but I am getting smarter about the disease. I'll try and share some things I learned in a future post.
