I made a small batch of zucchini relish to try. It came out spicey. I think it’ll be good on rice or even beans. Then I went back to Ikeda’s fruit stand and bought 1 container of their peaches to try the lavender peach jam again right. It came a beautiful color. But I’m […]
I’m going to start this off with a good story. For the past seven years, I have been getting infusion therapy for my MM at Dana Farber, most recently with Zometa (bone building) infusions every 3 months. For all this time, Heather has been my primary…
This was in my welcome kit. What am I supposed to do with it?
I like to be prepared in case of rain when I leave the house. I will check the weather report and if there is a possibility of rain, I’ll throw my umbrella in my backpack. As I walk and transit … Continue reading →

Hello August that is so far, so much better than July!
Happily I don’t have any new news for you since my last posts and I am thrilled to have July’s craziness behind me! I’m looking forward to seeing how my body responds again to Darzalex…
So, it doesn’t appear that a suitable donor will be identified. In a previous post, I mentioned that a 9/10 match had been identified. However, the mismatched protein was a very significant one and to move forward with that donor could resu…
Maria’s Story by Francesca SaracoBefore I begin, I’d like to say that everyone’s journey with multiple myeloma is very personal to them. Not only is the disease unique in the way that it expresses itself within the patient, but everyone’s path to diagnosis and treatment is unique to them as well.
