    Pat Killingsworth: Multiple Myeloma Blog
    News, published 5 months ago

    show transcript


    Pat was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in April, 2007 at the age of fifty-one. There is currently no cure for this cancer of the plasma cells that are found in bone marrow. Pat experienced what is called a Complete Response (CR), or temporary remission after a year of intense steroid, radiation and oral chemotherapy. He remained in CR for more than two years. Unfortunately, Pat's multiple myeloma is slowly creeping back. But he has lots of treatment options and is doing fine so far. Pat's wife, Pattie, was first diagnosed with cancer in 1996. She is a cervical, uterine and ovarian cancer survivor. Despite a close call in 2009, Pattie remains cancer free today. Pattie now works with cancer patients at a Florida dialysis clinic. Pat is an author and freelance medical writer. He travels often, attending important medical conferences and speaking to cancer support groups. The Killingsworth's have dedicated their lives to helping other cancer patients and survivors learn to cope with their disease.
