It’s been a while since this was written, but I just became aware of this NPR story about Minnesota Don. Don’s an amazing person, in every way.
Targeted Cancer Drugs Keep Myeloma Patients Up And Running
Don Wright got diagnosed with multiple myeloma at what turned out to be the right time. It was 10 years ago, when he was 62.
That was at the beginning of a revolution in treating this once-fearsome , which strikes around every year. The malignancy can literally eat holes in victims’ bones, which can snap from the simple act of bending over to pick up a package.
I have never met Don in person, but I have spoken to him on the phone, and he even did me a super big favor once. A couple of times. He’s been great about sharing his experiences with the myeloma treatments he’s undergone. He’s been on pomalyst lately, which is a new-ish drug for mm patients.
