S'Myeloma Award - Lori Hudson Puente

As we make our way through the helter-skelter maze of the Multiple Myeloma world we all need encouragement, laughter and a liberal dose of hope. In the middle of the dark, torrential downpour of MM, you will meet shining, bright-light people. 

Today's S'Myeloma Award goes to caregiver extraordinaire, Lori Hudson Puente, from California. Read about her by clicking on the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences' website in an interview entitled Myeloma Caregiver Recounts Rewarding Journey .

Lori, whom I met last month during a return trip to Little Rock, is an actively involved, dedicated caregiver to her husband Dave, a Myeloma patient at UAMS. She, like my wife and many other caregivers, are vital to a MM patient's good health and well being.

Do yourself a favor and visit her excellent blog and website Riding The Wave - Multiple Myeloma .

Thank you, Lori, for showing us how it is done! 

 Keep fighting out there in Myelomaville!

Anonymous #2 - your kind words humble me. Just giving back in some small way, though I can never hope to re-pay the warmth and encouragement that I've been shown. You don't have to go far in Myelomaville to witness amazing courage and great strength. THANK YOU! Happy New Year!
