In this video from our ""Living Well With Multiple Myeloma"" event held at SCCA in November 2011, multiple myeloma patient Jamie Parsons and his wife Mary Beth Parsons discuss his diagnosis and participation in a clinical trial. They share their reaction to the diagnosis and describe how a support emerges from others who have dealt with myeloma. Mr. Parsons feels blessed to be a part of the first phase of a 16-month clinical trial. He did not experience side effects, and after more than 3 years, he is pleased with results of his monthly tests. He and Mary Beth are full of hope feel that myeloma is a disease to be managed rather than succumbed to.
