I am a 21 year old female and I was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma this past March. I had never even heard of this type of cancer until then. I have been in and out of hospitals for the past 8 years and the doctors all told me I had blood clots in my spinal area and legs but they never bothered to test for cancer. Finally a new doctor was given my case and he quickly suggested I see a specialist at the Austin Cancer Center.I am scheduled for Stem Cell Transplant next week. I am an opera performance major in my sophomore year of college. I always dreamed of traveling the world and performing. Now I'm terrified I may never be able to do so. I'm still in shock every day. I found this site while researching survivor stories and so far have found it very useful & uplifting. I hope to find comfort and to ease my mind in the future with this site.
