    Recently, I got an email from a woman in Jamaica who was beside herself because their health care system is fee- for- service.  Her mom had spent her life in public service and retired with a pension, but no health insurance    Her mother has multiple myeloma and she has exhausted her pension, savings, and the entire families’ available resources.  To quote Lisa, “We are flat broke, and [...]

    , July 23, 2013

    Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) results in the bone marrow not producing enough normal blood cells for the body to function properly.  It isn’t unusual for multiple myeloma patients to develop MDS after undergoing years of chemotherapy.  I just watched the best video I’ve ever seen on this rare hematological disorder–and I’m not just saying that because [...]

    It was a bright, sunny afternoon when I decided to accompany my sister-in-law to one of the local NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations at the self-help center near where we lived.

    , July 12, 2013

    What the heck is a “triple witching hour?” According to Mark Koba, Senior Business Editor for CNBC, “Witching hours occur when financial contracts—specifically options and futures—end on the third Friday of a month.  Traditionally, all contracts expire in the same hour—thus the name witching hour—usually the last hour of trading.” And the end of the [...]

    Sorry friends for the absence, but I have been entirely too busy living, and have not been thinking much about Multiple Myeloma or this web site.  This has raised a question in my mind that maybe we all need to remember to just LIVE our lives and somehow leave Multiple Myeloma in the back of our minds, if at all possible.    This is so easy to say but much harder to do.  We recently moved to Atanti [...]

    , July 1, 2013

    Yesterday’s post generated quite a bit of interest.  Here’s what I know about CD38 and MOR202  In January 2012, a 19 year old company that specializes in human antibody research, MorphoSys, received a U.S. patent for MOR202, a fully human HuCAL antibody.  This new antibody was designed to use CD38 as a therapeutic target for [...]
