During the time I was in treatment, I coordinated my doctor visits and chemo with another myeloma patient who lives about 25 miles from here. We traveled to Chapel Hill appointments together and, when we were told the only treatment left to us was a stem cell transplant, we had ours together through The Duke Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant (ABMT) Program in Durham, NC. We even had apartments next door to one another!
One of our doctors started calling us the “myeloma twins.”
I’m really glad to have just gotten the news that Joyce is moving to Pinehurst, which borders on Southern Pines (where I live)! She’ll only be a few miles away, so we’ll get to see each other more often.
