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 is a small piece of the total Multiple Myeloma picture. Multiple Myeloma patients want to learn about chemotherapy side effects and their treatments, anti-MM nutrition, anti-MM supplementation, and much more. 

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. 

This website and the non-profit organization that supports it are dedicated to helping cancer survivors and caregivers become informed, educated decision-makers about their treatment.
