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.

Terry Golombick PhD

My desire to help patients is driven by the death of a very dear friend to chronic myeloid leukemia while doing a PhD studying the mechanisms of growth of cancer cells in a laboratory. During the painful years undergoing therapy for her disease, I noticed she was given no information on how to try improve her health status and quality of life in order to enable her to fight the disease.​​ I am now dedicated to educating people diagnosed with early cancers of the blood on how to try to improve their health status through diet and natural medicine. Our research has shown how certain supplements can improve certain markers of disease progression in the blood and bone marrow and improve immune function in some patients. A change in diet and lifestyle shows improved quality of life.
