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.

Michael Riotto

Michael was 51 years old when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2011. He had his autologous stem cell transplant later that same year. Post-transplant, he said it took about three months before he felt well enough to return to work full-time as a department store manager. Today, Michael is retired and says life is great. “There’s always a silver lining," he said, “you just have to find it.” Michael finds his joy in walking - a favorite form of exercise that, he says, “clears the mind.” He enjoys time with his wife and children and looks forward to spring each year when he can grow his hybrid peonies.
