Evelyn has been living with multiple myeloma for almost nine years. What she has learned from this was to expect the unexpected. She had her first relapse in January of 2021, which was unexpected. After completing treatment, she was back into a complete response. What she has found helpful to persevere along the journey was a strong support team—in healthcare, spiritual aspects, family, and circle of friends. She believes it’s imperative to have the entire team working in tandem. Developing short-term and long-term treatment plans with her healthcare team and allowing room for adjustment as needed has been a part of process. Evelyn looks forward to helping others navigate their unexpected.
