    Hang in there as our prayers are always with you. Alice & Bill. You know I may have to make that decision one day myself since I have to see cancer doctor.

    James, I am glad I found your article, I know how tough this decision is. I was diagnose with Stage III Multiple Myeloma in June 2010. I completed 6 cycles of Velcade / Rev / Dex, 33 radiation treatments (between femur and humerus) and started monthly Zometa in July. I live about 100 miles from Minneapolis and my oncologist is at the U of M (Masonic Cancer Center), however, I can get all my treatments at the Willmar Cancer Center. It was recommended that I do a transplant, but I made the same decision as you. I may reconsider later, but for now, I would like to at least wait. I have just started my 4th series of maintenance and am in remission and feeling good. Let me know if you have a caringbridge site – I would like to follow your progress. Email me any time. Our prayers are with you and your family.
