Mary Sage lives with her husband Michael (who is also a MM Caregiver Coach), her adult son Raymond who is also one of her caregivers, and 2 dogs (Stella and Jake). She has lived in the Pacific Northwest region since 1986. She was diagnosed with Stage 2 IgG Lambda, standard risk in November 2015 and placed on immediate disability due to several spinal fractures and compressions, severe pain and limited mobility. Like many others, prior to diagnosis, she experienced years of bizarre blood results and chronic back pain that was becoming increasingly debilitating. Mary had a stem cell harvest in 2016 and a stem cell transplant (SCT) in 2019. Currently, her bloodwork shows standard risk MM; her MRD is positive with 5 parts per million. Since 2015 she has had 2 relapses and has become refractory to 2 treatments. Presently, her maintenance treatment, since May 2022, is KPd (Kyprolis, Pom and Dex) at 3 weeks on and 1 week off. Mary is in a good response with this treatment and hopes to be able to hold these results for a long time. Her pain is managed by a dedicated pain team who work closely with her to maintain quality of life.
