Results: True stories - Mission Accomplished Dear Barbara, my husband and I attended one of your conferences a few years ago shortly after my sister in Los Angeles had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma. It was the best thing we could have done. It was very informative and so well organized. We sat with a group of women during lunch whom shared their experiences with multiple myeloma and from them we learned who their doctors were. We passed this information on to my sister; she then made an appointment with one of those doctors (at Mayo) for a consultation. As a result she was more able to make a decision about her treatment. Thanks to you also, she continues to be doing well, feeling well. Just want to let you know we are happy that we attended your conference and wanted to share this with you. Sincerely, Doris March 2016 A new patient, who heard me (Barbara Kavanagh) speak on Fred Taylor's Radio program, never attended a myeloma meeting. He was so excited at the conference to meet other patients and the wonderful faculty. He shared that he had felt very isolated since most people he knew had never heard of myeloma and now felt less anxious and more hopeful. - Larry 2016 Living with Myeloma Conference
