Event Description

Before procedures like the Stem Cell Transplant or CAR T therapy, caregivers often wonder what their responsibilities will look like in the coming weeks and months.

Here to help provide some guidance are two experienced caregivers who did the best they could during their partner's procedure and recovery. They are willing to help others by sharing their experience.

Come with your questions and hear from fellow caregivers in your myeloma community.

Audrey joined the HealthTree Foundation as the Myeloma Community Program Director in 2020. While not knowing much about myeloma at the start, she has since worked hard to educate herself, empathize and learn from others' experiences. She loves this job. Audrey is passionate about serving others, loves learning, and enjoys a nice mug of hot chocolate no matter the weather.
