My mom has Multiple Myeloma and I am her primary caregiver. The AZ Myeloma Network provides programs, information and access to professional we would not have otherwise.
Thanks so much to this great team of people that make a difference in the lives of those who need it most!
I have volunteered and attended the Multiple Myeloma conference for many years and each year I learn about new advances in this field. Barbara and Jack are dedicated in helping and educating patients with Multiple Myeloma throughout the year .
I met Barbara and Jack after I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma 6 years ago. They have become like family to me and my family. We have attended the AzMN annual conference for the past 6 years. It is always excellent!!! Outstanding medical professionals present information in a manner that is easy to understand for those of us who are not in the medical field. What a wonderful opportunity it has been to personally meet and visit with doctors from various parts of the country who are top-notch in researching and treating those of us with this incurable form of cancer. I've also attended their excellent Roundtable a few times. Information presented at the Roundtable is of a more technical nature geared more toward medical professionals. It is a fantastic opportunity for medical professionals to earn continuing education units in a very positive environment. The Cancer Caregiver Seminars that AzMN began hosting about 3 years ago have been an amazing source of support for my family members who are my steadfast companions on this journey of cancer survivorship. They have found these seminars to be a great source of strength and a wonderful way to "recharge" themselves in their roles as cancer caregivers. One of the most special aspects of AzMN is the message of hope that is evident at every event. It is very encouraging for me and my family to know we are not alone in this journey with cancer. We now have a wonderful extended family which includes Barbara and Jack along with many wonderful volunteers and others who are also traveling the path of multiple myeloma themselves or with a loved one or friend. Congratulations, Jack, on being a 25-year multiple myeloma survivor! Congratulations, too, to you and Barbara as you celebrate 25 years of marriage! You are both a great source of inspiration to all of us. It is through the efforts of people like you and the collaboration AzMN is fostering among everyone involved in treating multiple myeloma that hopefully in the not-too-distant future, multiple myeloma will become a CURABLE form of cancer. Thank you for all you do to improve the quality of life for so many of us. For anyone considering making a donation, rest assured your contribution is going to a very worthwhile cause. I think you would be hard pressed to find any charity that makes better use of funds in providing a greatly-needed service to many people. When anyone is diagnosed with multiple myeloma, it obviously has a huge impact on family finances. The fact that all AzMN events are provided free of charge to cancer patients along with their family members and friends makes it possible for many people to benefit from these events when they might otherwise not be able to participate. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Barbara and Jack, for founding and energetically continuing this terrific organization!!!!!
AZMN is a marvelous organization, always trying to find new ways to support cancer patients. I am a multiple myeloma survivor who has greatly benefitted from the wealth of information gained at their yearly spring conference. Barbara always finds experts in the field who are willing to donate a day with us. Not only do they speak about the latest treatments, but they are available to patients for individual consults. I am so grateful Barbara and her staff for doing this every year!
I have known Jack and Barbara over 8 years. They work endlessly to help patients find doctors and provide top notch conferences so patients will know the latest treatments for Multiple Myeloma. They are the best
I have been associated with Arizona Myeloma Network for over 8 years. The organization cares about helping patients and educating them on resources available to them. Barbara and Jack work endlessly in providing the best programs and events possible. They are the best.
I have known about the AZ Myeloma Network organization for several years. They are amazing offering support to those going through this cancer to the caregivers walking along side. The conferences are educational and well put on. They want to make sure those who were unable to attend due to their health or prior commandments have the information presented at their conference and the post the presentation on their website. They offer education and refer to resources to help you. Barbara and Jack give back to the community in a special way by helping people become educated and know they are not alone on this journey of cancer. I would give them an A+ and encourage people to donate to this great organization.
I recently attended the 10th Annual Arizona Myeloma Network - Scientific Research Roundtable. This was the 3rd such event I have attended since developing Multiple Myeloma. Every year has been better than the previous.
This year's two day event included presentations from Doctors and Researchers from top hospitals and Cancer Institutes across the country.
I came away with a solid knowledge of the history of research and drugs developed, and understanding that current direction of research and treatment is toward Immunotherapy.
My Oncologist is one of the top ranked in the State, but would never have the time to explain all the history and reasons for the different Chemo drugs I have tried over the years.
From information I learned from A.M.N., I feel most comfortable being part of an Immunotherapy drug trial.
Thank you Arizona Myeloma Network for your support.
My husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma three years ago. We were told about the Arizona Myeloma Network by my father-in-law who saw an article about the yearly conference. We have attended the yearly conference three years in a row and each time we learn something new. I have also attended a seminar for care givers and found it to be very helpful. The experts they bring to their conferences and seminars are leaders in this type of cancer. The Arizona Myeloma Network has made a positive difference in our lives.
I can't say enough about the Arizona Myeloma Network! They are always there with information on my illness. One of the most honest organizations I have had the pleasure to be associated with...
God bless Them!
I have jus recently joined the AZ Myeloma Network Board, both Barbara and Jack are examples of true “Heroes,” they “live it, breath it.” This organization is part of who they are, never turning any patient and or caregiver away. I am proud to be a part of their journey.
