I know someone who was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and I was trying to help them by researching options of where to go to for the best treatment.  Would you please be willing to share your experience based on success of outcome, patient experience, and caregiver support.  

Thank you in advance.

There are many great cancer treatment centers all over the country.....there is also many different approaches depending on where you go.....do your research....

I live in Alaska and go to SCCA (Seattle Cancer Care Alliance)

which is Fred Hutchinson/Seatte Childrens Hospital/UW Medicine  located in Seattle......I am very pleased with the specialists there....

good luck in your research

Thank you Terry.  I appreciate it.  We are located on the coast of Georgia.  So, while ideally something on the east coast would be ideal, I think they are open minded.

I live in the Houston area and of course I go to MDAnderson Cancer Center.  I had my stem cell transplant there.  I also see my local oncologist monthly and MDA every 3 months.

I have been going to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa.  It is a national cancer institute (NCI).  I love everyone there.  Their care is very thorough and the Drs. are great!  Excellent reputation.
