Sam was diagnosed with multiple myeloma 10 years ago after having routine bloodwork completed. His bloodwork showed elevated protein levels, leading his primary care doctor to refer him to an oncologist for additional testing. Sam did not have any symptoms prior to his diagnosis. Sam’s distant relative had multiple myeloma so he was somewhat aware of it, but he primarily relied on Google searches for information on the disease.
Sam lives in a rural area with his spouse about 2 hours away from a major metropolitan city. They have 1 adult child and 2 young grandchildren who live in a different state. He enjoys being in nature and living a healthy lifestyle.
