“My back was bothering me, so I went to the VA near my home and had two kyphoplasty surgeries. After one of the surgeries, I was told that something has appeared in my lab work and that I had what was known as smoldering multiple myeloma. A friend put me in touch with a couple living in my town who comes to UAMS for multiple myeloma treatment.
After gathering information on the Internet and visiting with that couple, I decided to come to UAMS as well. My wife and I were committed to coming here because it was the best place to be. I couldn’t have done this without her.”
