Marsha's dedication to bringing awareness and education to our communities is personal. She is a caregiver to her husband who has multiple myeloma and has witnessed the blessing of a supportive village as her family continues to navigate this journey. She's led to give back and to do all that she can to help other families obtain the knowledge that will empower and enlighten them regarding myeloma. Prayerfully, this knowledge will lead to the best possible care which, in turn, will facilitate the best possible outcomes. Although a lawyer and consultant, Marsha finds time to work with the myeloma community all while enjoying time with her husband, 3 adult daughters and young grandson.
