Vicki has been fighting Myeloma since 2004 when she was diagnosed with stage 2 Myeloma and began aggressive chemotherapy. After a stem cell transplant in 2007 from which she obtained a very good partial response, Vicki has been on just about every drug regimen available. Every drug has worked well but, of course, nothing works forever. Recently after being IGA lambda for over 17 years, Vicki became a non-secretor and now leads Healthtree’s non secretory community group. Throughout her myeloma journey, Vicki has gratefully maintained an excellent quality of life and now finds joy in helping others diagnosed with Myeloma.
