I am excited to be invited to ASH 2017. As a support group leader here in Staten Island NY, I feel a strong obligation to keep the group informed of the latest breakthroughs in the world of multiple myeloma. Since I have retired this year, I am focused on fine-tuning my role in the group, and I believe participating and experiencing ASH will bring me to a higher level in understanding the disease.
Being part of a team so devoted to keeping up with the latest treatments and looking forward to a time when a cure will be found is what I believe inspires us all in our various roles in the myeloma community. I am sure I will have my batteries recharged and ready to go into high gear once I return home.
