In May, 2023, Chris was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma after experiencing back pain and what we initially thought was a nasty virus. It was a shock to our family, but Chris immediately began preparations for his fight and never lost his positive attitude or sense of humour. He started treatment a few weeks later and is currently still undergoing chemotherapy. Next, he will have a stem cell transplant and is expected to achieve remission.
The average remission for Myeloma only lasts 3-4 years before relapse occurs. The disease is currently incurable, but with continued advancements in technology and research, we remain hopeful that eventually Chris and others with Myeloma can have a permanent and effective treatment. In this spirit, I’m raising money in support of Myeloma Canada by participating in the Multiple Myeloma March.
By making a donation to Chris’ Crew, you are supporting the pursuit of curing and preventing the disease, accelerating access to the best care, while empowering and improving the lives of all Canadians affected by Myeloma.
Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
