How has your myeloma diagnosis impacted your relationship with others?
Dr. Urvi Shah, a research team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), wants to learn about myeloma patients' experiences telling (or not telling) friends, family, coworkers, and others about their diagnosis and medical issues.
This is a way that you can contribute to accelerated myeloma research to help physicians better understand the whole picture of a myeloma diagnosis. A patient's mental well-being affects their ability to improve physically.
There is not one right or wrong answer when it comes to telling people about your myeloma diagnosis. In addition, different people will have varying reactions and responses to you telling them about your disease, often in unpredictable ways.
Share your experience in this area of your myeloma journey by participating in this 14-minute survey.
You will need a HealthTree Cure Hub account to participate in this survey. If you haven't signed up for your free account already, you can do so today here: HealthTree Cure Hub
