I'm Natia. Couple of months ago my mom was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. She just finished her second round of Velcade. Watching her being in pain, weak and helpless is killing me. I hope these are only temporary side effects and she'll be back to her normal self. A very knowledgeable doctor (in another country) told me she's got 5 years to live. I'm not sure what this statement was based on, but I refuse to believe it! I brought her back to the USA and will continue her treatment in Boston. I'll do everything possible and impossible to have her around for alot longer, than I was originally told. I know very little about MM and would like to keep contact with people who went through treatment as a patient, or a caregiver. Please guide me <3
