Welcome to Myeloma News.com!


My name is Pat Killingsworth, and I have multiple myeloma. I am disabled now, but I still work part-time as a freelance medical writer, covering cancer related conferences and interviewing the brightest myeloma experts from around the world. I try and report on the information I gather from a patient's perspective.

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: Each story features a short description. Below that you will find a headline. If you would like to read more, simply click-on the headline, and it will take you directly to the source. Quick and easy!

I share my opinions about these and other topics on my daily blog: www.MultipleMyelomaBlog.com.

Good luck and remember: Feel good and keep smiling! Pat

I have met both of these dedicated, hard working professionals, dedicated to helping cure multiple myeloma. CONGRATULATIONS, KATHY!

FORTUNE Magazine just revealed that MMRF Founder and CEO, Kathy Giusti, has been named #19 on “The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” list. Recognition like this only comes when partners, donors and families work together from a forward-thinking plan to develop first-in-class collaborative research models that accelerate cures. And, while humbling and unexpected, such recogniton drives us to work that much harder and more urgently toward our mission of speeding a cure for multiple myeloma.
