The Day That Changed My Life - Here's Something You Should Know, Multiple Myeloma Awareness
With all the awareness cancer themes of September, we wanted to highlight that it's Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month. Have you ever heard of Multiple Myeloma? Well, Multiple Myeloma is a rare form of cancer that sneaks in the attack on the bones, ribs organs and spine. Unfortunately due to the easily explained pains that may be dismissed as getting up there in age, perhaps knowing that you may have lifted something too heavy (weights, boxes, furniture, etc.), thinking you may need to modify exercise or daily activities. Sadly, we have lost a great loved one to Multiple Myeloma. However, in his honor, it is very important to keep the awareness alive, not only this month but for the daily awareness as there are patients/families who are facing this diagnosis throughout the year.
Be informed - take notes and be sure to share this blog with everyone you know. This may help make a difference in the life of someone who may be able to discuss the symptoms and ask the appropriate questions.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
