Selinexor Support Group Chapter

Event Description

Join us for the second session of our Selinexor Support Group. This time, as we meet in a more interactive way, you will hear from two patient advocates (Chrissy and Bob) and then have the chance to share your story. We are here to connect, educate, and support patients who are currently being treated with selinexor, caregivers of patients on selinexor, and those patients who are considering selinexor as treatment. Come join us as we share our selinexor stories. This is a Google Meet meeting. You can join even without a Gmail account. If you are joining via mobile, please download the Google Meet app from your App store.

Chrissy Degennaro is a true myeloma warrior. Diagnosed at 36 years old, only a year and a half after giving birth, her entire life was altered. After 2 stem cell transplants, 2 CAR T cell therapies, and 27 other chemo regimens, Chrissy was lacking options and ready to throw in the towel. However, after overcoming her hesitancies about the new drug selinexor (or XPOVIO), she has been continuing to fight for the last year. Chrissy is charismatic, family-oriented, and a wonderful Patient Advocate for our Selinexor Support Group.
