Learn about Multiple Myeloma (cancer in the blood)

The following information is being shared with you on behalf of West Glen and The Mount Sinai Medical Center.*

mount sinai logoMultiple Myeloma is a cancer in the blood that affects the lives of many throughout the United States. The Mount Sinai Medical Center would like to tell you about “Leadership To Cure,” aimed at providing the public with knowledge of the disease. They would also like to share an inspirational story of hope about a remarkable mother and her twin miracles, Dahlia and Sonya.

As with any illness, optimism can often dwindle over time, so it’s important to always share stories of hope with one another to show our support! Meet Dina Feivelson, diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma stage 3 in 2002 at the age of 32. When Dina was first diagnosed, no one thought she would see 40. Well, as you will learn, she proved statistics wrong with the help of her doctor and a miracle happened, as 8 years later Dina turned 40, and that same year she also gave birth to her girls.  It’s a different life than anyone expected she’d be able to have and now Dina proudly shares her story with other mothers, as she is a true inspiration. Read Dina’s story here.

Dina’s light throughout this battle has been Dr. Sundar Jagannath, or Dr. “Jag” as she calls him, professor of medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the director of the Multiple Myeloma program. He is leading the way to build projects at Mount Sinai that bridge basic science and clinical practices for the benefit of advancing care in blood cancer patients everywhere.  The good news is that the current standard of care for Multiple Myeloma has dramatically improved over the past 10 years, especially with the approval of new drugs.

We encourage you to learn more and to share this story with others!

    My 2nd Mom, she is as close to a Mom as anyone could be, was one of the very first complete stem cell transplant recipients for multiple myeloma in the US. At that time, it was not a standard procedure for MM, and we were just excited that they were willing to try an experimental technique to give her a chance at remission. I a thrilled to say that she has been in remission ever since!!! She still goes to receive treatment/checks and takes medication, but she has now been in remission with no signs of MM for over 17 years!!! Before they used the stem cell technique the outlook for someone with MM was less than 10 years. It is wonderful to read about other success stories for MM with stem cells!!!! Congrats to Dina on her successful remission and on her beautiful daughters!!!

    Hi Chandra: This is an amazing story to share with us. Thanks so much for your comment! 17 years is a long time to be in remission – I’m so happy to hear that your mom is doing well.

    Myeloma is diagnosed with blood tests (serum protein electrophoresis, serum free kappa/lambda light chain assay), bone marrow examination, urine protein electrophoresis, and X-rays of commonly involved bones. Myeloma is generally thought to be treatable but incurable. Remissions may be induced with steroids, chemotherapy, proteasome inhibitors (e.g. bortezomib), immunomodulatory drugs (IMiDs) such as thalidomide or lenalidomide, and stem cell transplants. Radiation therapy is sometimes used to reduce pain from bone lesions.,`..-
