Multiple Myeloma – Save Yourself!!!! Dr. Hofmeister, of The James Cancer Center at Ohio State University, as part of Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month, has offered to provide a free second opinion over the phone to a worthy myeloma patient anywhere in the world. As I have stated time and time again a multiple myeloma specialist can double and triple your life expectancy and survival rate. All that is required is that your provide an email to email@example.com outlining the reasons you might have a need of a second opinion from a multiple myeloma specialist. We will then determine the patient most in need. That it all that is required. Once you have been chosen we will require that you forward all of your required test results to Dr. Hofmeister for his review. If I find that there is a siginificant need I will pay Dr. Hofmeister from my own pocket for one additional second opinion to help “SAVE LIFE”. Dr. Jan Moreb of The Shands at the University of Florida has also generous in providing a consult. Dr. Moreb’s myeloma program has shown exceptional life expectancy and survival rates. Any other people who would like to contribute can contact me as well.

Thank you Dr. Hofmeister and Dr. Moreb for your generous donations. Dr. Hofmeister’s exact donation is even better for anyone who may be able to visit his facility in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Hofmeister states: ” Happy to review someone’s records and talk with them by phone as a second opinion. If they come to Ohio State for a 2nd opinion, there insurance will be billed for the labs, the nurse’s time, etc. That said if the patient has no resources, we see patients without insurance and have social workers that will handhold the patient through medicaid and all that “
Dr. Moreb’s response to my request was ” I will be happy to participate. Thank you for doing this.” Dr. Moreb, we thank you for your selfless generosity!
However, if you are not chosen, you can still get a second opinion on line from Dr. Hofmeister for a very reasonable price if you go to the web site: https://2nd.md/disease/multiplemyeloma . Consults on this site are very reasonably priced and run from $100 to $250 for a 20 minute consult. A consult with Dr. Hofmeister could just SAVE LIFE! Maybe yours!
And as always, may God Bless your multiple myeloma jouney /Gary Petersen
