      Hi Raymond!

      No worries – after every Round Table we release videos of the the speaker’s presentations and highlights from the Q&A. Great way to review what was discussed at the conference if you are unable to attend. The video will be released about 2-3 weeks after the event on the Myeloma Crowd website.

      Best wishes,
      Allyse

    I would be interested in seeing them. I am a myeloma survivor, had stem cell transplant and continue to take velcade inj. Every 14 days. I was wondering of any changes at this point?

    I registered earlier today, but have not received a confirmation email.

      Hi Linda! Thanks for reaching out. I will resend your confirmation email right now! Sometimes the initial email gets lost in the junk/spam folder because it’s not recognizable. Look forward to seeing you in Austin! Best wishes.
