Jeff Abram

Jeff Abram diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in August of 2018. He had a bone marrow transplant at Roswell Park, Buffalo NY in December 2018. During the months of July and September, he finished my 200 hours of yoga teacher classes under Bhavani Maki. He now teaches yoga and has improved my lifestyle through yoga. He wants to help as many of my fellow brothers and sisters who have this disease realize this disease doesn’t have us. ALOHA!
