I feel so damn ANGRY at this disease. So helpless. I hate it! My own ride with myeloma has been easy by comparison, but now I've personally known thirteen people, shaken their hands and spoken face-to-face, people like Stacy, who have gone down before this merciless killer. All of them died too early, and Stacy's death is a particular tragedy.
Some people say that new treatments for myeloma might eventually turn it from a uniformly fatal disease into a chronic one. That's a great goal, but we're not there yet, not when a young wife and mother of two cannot be saved by the best medical care on earth. There is a lot of work to do.
Stacy, we love you and we commend you to the hands of God. We will most certainly miss you here.
