I have changed the title of my postings as well as the Blog Title from Road to Recovery to Living with Cancer. The reason being is that the cancer I have, Multiple Myeloma (MM), has no cure. All that can be done is to treat the cancer and hope to achieve remission.

There’re two types, partial remission, it means one can take a break from treatment as long as the cancer doesn’t begin to grow again. Complete remission means that tests, physical exams, and scans show that all signs of your cancer are gone. Some doctors also refer to complete remission as “no evidence of disease (NED).”

For now, I am in some kind of partial remission, my treatment cycle is four weeks. In addition to my chemo treatment every 4 weeks I also take chemo pills every day for 21 days, 7 days off.

To read my daily posting, select from the “My Blogs” pull-down menu “Living with Cancer“, or click on the link HERE, that’s all you have to do.
