    I was just told Friday that after 6 years of help from the Lukemia Society that I would no longer receive any financial help. They said their was no money for Myeloma patients. I had already received the notice that I was ok for this year up to 10000 dollars. I waited for months for them to pay Blue cross Blue shield and we called and they said they could not pay. I was 1020 dollars behind. I appreciate what they did for me and we are in some trouble coming up with this money. Please check to see if there is no money for Myeloma patients My wife is a 4 operations cancer survivor also
