On December 6th, 2018 my sister-in-law, Jenn, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma at the age of 34, her life drastically changed overnight.
She had 17 weeks of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant in 2019.
She had a slow relapse from mid 2020 to January 2023 and went back to weekly chemotherapy injections for 23 weeks with immunotherapy injections.
As of July 2023 she is in the maintenance phase of a new treatment plan and getting a immunotherapy injection every 28 days.
Multiple Myeloma is incurable at this time and the monthly immunotherapy injections are keeping the Multiple Myeloma in check. Our biggest hope is a cure will be found soon so she can live cancer free.
