When giving comfort is the ultimate gift in caring…
This letter was written by the owner of Caringcomfort.com. It appears in the latest edition of “Myeloma Today”:
“I am an American living abroad. In the past four months, I lost two people in my life to cancer (not multiple myeloma), and now I am dealing with my husband’s myeloma diagnosis. My husband chooses not to learn about the disease, so the task of doing research has fallen to me. Thanks to the internet, information about myeloma is more accessible now than ever before, and we are able to communicate, exchange ideas and experiences and support one another even over great distances.
One Myeloma Today article has made a particularly positive impression on me. I found Peter Tischler;s Living Successfully with Multiple Myeloma to be a concise but in-depth first-hand account of a disease that I am only now learning about. As a caregiver, I was so grateful to learn so much information. I had so many doubts about the future and Peter’s article gave me hope. I no longer feel that I must stand on the sidelines watching my husband’s struggles. I now feel that there are things I can do to help him fight myeloma.
On our new journey, one of the things that have struck me is how myeloma has touched so many lives. We are not alone. The support, education, and information that the IMF and its members, like Peter Tischler provide to the patient and caregiver community has empowered me to really take an active part in my husbands treatment and care. I thank your organization and Peter for your positive contribution to our new perspective.”
