As you may know, Max's dad is living with Multiple Myeloma. Over the past few years, we have been learning more about this cancer as he goes through his treatment.
Multiple myeloma, also known as myeloma, is the 2nd most common form of blood cancer. Myeloma affects a type of immune cell called the plasma cell, found in the bone marrow. Every day, ten Canadians are diagnosed, yet in spite of its growing prevalence, the disease remains relatively unknown. While there is no cure, people with myeloma are living longer and better lives, thanks to recent breakthroughs in treatment. To find the cure, more funding and research are required.
I’m participating in the Myeloma Canada Ride to support Pierre-Andre, and also to raise money in support of Myeloma Canada.
