Multiple Myeloma Overall 5-Year Survival Statistics are confusing at best. Misleading at worst.
I was diagnosed in 1994 and was told I was end-stage in 1997. By 1999, I reached full remission by undergoing a non-toxic, alternative cancer therapy. I followed up by living an evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM regimen through nutrition, supplementation, bone health, lifestyle and mind-body therapies.
My point is that you can’t always believe the official statistics of the American Cancer Society, which give people with MM 3–5 years, depending on your stage at diagnosis. As my high school statistics teacher used to tell me, “there are lies, damn lies and statistics.”
Your challenge is to figure out how to beat the odds based on your unique circumstances:
- How does age affect overall myeloma survival?
- How does the genetic variation of your MM effect your survival?
- How does the underreporting of MM deaths affect your survival?
Whether you’re debating treatment options, currently undergoing treatment and experiencing painful side effects, or trying to figure out how to stay in remission, I want to share what I’ve learned from 22 years of full remission from Multiple Myeloma.
I give a FREE webinar that covers everything from side effects to the benefits of integrative therapies. You’ll even get two FREE cancer-coaching guides just for attending! I hope you’ll join me and start using this important information in your own healing.
