When most people think of getting a second opinion after a diagnosis of multiple myeloma, (MM) they think of consulting another oncologist. While this kind of second opinion is important, talking to a long-term survivor of MM, a long-term survivor who has experienced and studied both conventional and non-conventional cancer care may identify issues that a conventional oncologist won’t.

These topics are a critical part of treating your MM. You must look at this process holistically– meaning that fighting MM is about more than selecting radiation or chemotherapy. There are many aspects to successfully treating MM and as a 20 plus year survivor, I know better than anyone how important these aspects are to long-term survival.
