        I am caregiver to my spouse who has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma in October 6, 2016. She has undergone autologous bone marrow transplant, 75 radiotherapy on her spine and knees. She’s been treated with Velcade, RVD & Dexamethasone, after that Darzalex, RVD & Pomalyst and now with Kyprolis, Pomalyst and Dexamethasone. It’s a not easy uphill battle but we can never give up nor surrender to it.
