10th Cancerversary!

Image
Happy Canceversary to me!  It has been 10 years today since I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma! My treatment included high doses of chemotherapy,  Melphalan, Velcade, Thalidomide, Revelomid, and two stem cell transplants.  This kicked me down to "barely breathing," but kicked Myeloma into a "Complete Response."   I was on Maintenance medication for about 4 years and have slowly regained my strength since then.  I continue to do blood tests and lab work every three months and scans and a bone marrow biopsy once a year. To celebrate 10 years my family gathered in Salt Lake City with the LLS "Light the Night" event. It was wonderful to have my whole family (minus two babies) together reflecting on this journey and rejoicing in LIFE! 34 years together and counting!!!!                                             We wore stickers saying, "Kelly's Kicking Cancer since 2008"
