Hi. My sister was diagnosed with MM in 1996 at the age of 34. At the time, she had a tumor removed from her leg and had radiation. Since, she has had a stem cell transplant, chemo, more radiation, steroids, etc. She is doing well for having had MM for 8 years. I have found that it is rare for someone so young to have MM. I would really like to talk to someone who is or has taken care of someone who is as young as my sister is. I just don't know what to expect at this point. Her bones are definitely weaker and she now has a spiral fracture in her leg which will require surgery and pins. Her leg was broken in the past and it is the leg she had her tumor removed so it is more cement than bone. Anyway, I would really like to talk to someone who could answer some of my questions.
Thank you so much
