Hi, I am 66 years old and found out last year just by accident that I have Multiple Myeloma which is bone cancer.  I had 3 broken ribs and a compressed fracture in my back when I went to the hospital.  It was really strange because right before the 4th of July I was having trouble standing due to a great amount of pain in my sternum area.  Then it got to where I couldn't get out of bed without a shooting pain going from my lower back up through my head.  I visited a chiropractor and he did some manipulation on my rib area and back with a tool that later it was found out may have broken the ribs.  It was due to the cancer though as the bones were brittle.  The excruciating pain when standing was due to the compressed fracture which was pressing on a nerve.  When I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance because I couldn't get out of my recliner, they took a ton of xrays and it was discovered that I had the Multiple Myeloma.  It was quite a shock but I have a wonderful oncologist who is very helpful and is very good about explaining everything is very good terms so that even goofy ole me can understand what is going on.  I have incurred a lot of doctor/hospital bills and while I have gotten some help on my doctor's copays and the chemo but what I am having trouble with is paying the bills from the hospital, nursing home rehabilitation, monthly blood work, other charges from the doctor, and my regular bills.  My husband died in 2010 and I had to quit work in 2011 due to my inability at that time to get around very well from injuries suffered from an old car wreck that messed up my legs very badly.  I was on disability from my work but that is going to end in October because it was only for 36 months.  My bone cancer is not curable so this is going to be a long term on going process and when I obtain remission then I will just have to switch to a daily chemo medicine and then hope and pray my Lambda Light Chain levels don't go up again at least for awhile as then it is right back on the more difficult chemo treatments.  Maybe they will come up with another way besides bone marrow transplant to cure the myeloma because as you can see in my pictures I have a wonderful growing family and I want to be around to enjoy them for as long as I can.  I really hate asking for help but then someone had suggested that I do a fund raiser type activity and I saw this program online so I have included some cancer products for perks. Thank you so much for anything you can donate.
