Meet Myeloma Coach Heidi Thomas: Knowledge is Power

When I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2014, I had never heard of the disease and I had no idea where to turn.  I was young with three kids aged 13, 17 and 20...and looked forward to all of their milestones ahead.   After experiencing several mixed messages from doctors, who were not specialized, I sought out a specialist who had answers that made sense to me.  I was extremely lucky to have a connection with Jenny, (founder of Myeloma Crowd and HealthTree) and she cheered me on and pointed me in the right direction, which was mostly in the direction of hope.  I have now learned self-advocacy, how to create a team that I could believe in, and how best to filter and control all the information available to me so I could remain positive.  I feel empowered by all of the resources Myeloma Crowd has provided and I love having the experience of working with fellow patients as a Coach.  The ability to share information with each other and build relationships within this community has been so invaluable and inspiring.
