Special Guest:

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach, the recently-appointed Director of the National Cancer Institute, will be joining us for our Friday night welcome dinner and will be speaking to the group about his plans for the future. On behalf of the myeloma community, we thank Dr. Von Eschenbach for taking time out of his busy schedule to meet with patients and caregivers and understand their issues.


We also thank our dedicated faculty, who volunteer their time to help patients and caregivers understand more about diagnosis, monitoring, treatment and how to live well with myeloma.
