We Help People Living With Multiple Myeloma

Welcome to PeopleBeatingCancer.org!

My name is David Emerson, and I have been living with an incurable cancer called Multiple Myeloma since 1994. I launched PeopleBeatingCancer.org because I’ve learned that conventional Multiple Myeloma treatment is a small piece of living with Multiple Myeloma.

Multiple Myeloma patients should know the full picture about their prognosis, treatment, stem cell transplants, the side effects of chemotherapy, the health benefits of the right multiple myeloma diet, how to effectively use supplements, and other alternative treatments. 

Let me be clear: knowledge is power. The more you know, the better decisions you'll make for your care.  Yes, I said YOU. You are in control. 

My journey living with Multiple Myeloma.

My diagnosis of multiple myeloma led to aggressive treatments, side effects, remission, relapse, remission, relapse and an end-stage diagnosis. Click here to learn more about what I know about Multiple Myeloma treatment that I wish I knew then.

Could I have prevented my pre-myeloma (SBP, MGUS, SMM) from becoming full blown Multiple Myeloma?

Yes. Pre-Myeloma is a blood disorder, not cancer. Consider evidence-based non-conventional therapies to reduce your risk of full myeloma. Click here to learn about the Pre-Myeloma Coaching Program.

If you have been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, it is critical to think outside of the conventional oncology box. Click here to learn about the Multiple Myeloma Cancer Coaching Program.

I learned that treating Multiple Myeloma is as important as treating your body. If you've already begun conventional therapies, learn about treating your short-term, long-term, and late stage side effects now. Click here to view our Side Effects Coaching Program.
