My cancer is now in complete remission. I still have to deal with the damage to my spine that was done by the cancer. I am doing some special Physical Therapy in Folsom. I also have to go back to UCSF to harvest my stem cells and put them in the freezer in case they are needed at a later date. Once this is done I have to go back on four more cycles of chemo to beat down the cancer as much as we can. Multiple Myeloma is described by my doctor as a chronic disease which can be controlled. He equates it to Diabetes.  I am determined that it will not come back and am getting stronger every week. Your support during this very challenging time has been tremendous;  the words fail me to express my appreciation.
