"Hi my name is Von, and back in 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I got through chemotherapy and radiation with a breeze, and I'm now in remission for 13 years.

Then, in April 2020, I was diagnosed with a blood cancer: multiple myeloma! I went to the hospital because I was experiencing unusual pain. By the time the doctors found out what was wrong with me, the myeloma had fractured two of my ribs and all my bones were affected by this horrible cancer.

It's 2021, and th...ankfully, I'm doing much better. I want to thank The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)! Thanks for all the financial help and information on your website, which has really helped me understand more about myeloma and how to get through this."

We send our support and strength to Von and all those affected by multiple myeloma. This month, and always, we are here for you. Learn more about the resources we offer myeloma patients and families >> #MyelomaAwarenessMonth
