“Because this disease is treatable, it’s important to have someone to
talk to that can help you through the emotional and physical aspects.
Coaches are essential in fighting myeloma.
When you have a Coach, it helps build a positive attitude that you can get through this disease”
-Doug Stewart, Ogden, UT
