Sam built his care team around the idea that he wants to maintain balance in his treatment. He works with a local oncologist and a multiple myeloma specialist in the city two hours away. He checks in with both doctors regularly and they work together to develop a treatment plan that fits into his goals and needs.
Sam prioritized finding a care team that understood his needs and allowed him to partner in his treatment decisions. If you are interested in adding to your care team, there are some resources available to you, such as Myeloma Crowd’s tool to locate a specialist.
