2019 Multiple Myeloma Walk

Joe’s Journey

Joe’s Journey

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. This cause is very dear to our team, and we appreciate all the support we can get! Joe’s Journey fighting multiple myeloma started October 1, 2014. Joe was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and began treatment immediately that day. It has definitely been quite the journey since that day. Joe went into remission and was able to stop treatment in May of 2017. In June of 2018 we got the news that the cancer was back, but that there had been changes in the treatment plan and they wanted to start treatment right away again. This new treatment would be more aggressive but they believed it would work. This lead to another month long hospital stay and stem cell transplant. We are all so lucky that we live so close to the University of Iowa Hospitals where they have some of the top doctors in the field treating patients and also doing research on this disease. After some of the ups and downs that come with the stem cell transplant we are so happy that in May of this year we got the news he is back in remission! The progress he has made and continues to make in fighting this disease would not be possible without the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. We are excited to participate again this year and to be able to help give back to this organization! Please consider joining us for the walk on September 22nd and donating to fight Multiple Myeloma. Together we can make a difference! Thank you for being part of Joe’s Journey!
