After many months of the expensive treatments, Dave’s health improved enough to qualify for a bone marrow transplant at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital. After several weeks of hospitalization and a long recovery at home, Dave's bone marrow transplant was a success, placing him in remission. Dave then took an oral chemo drug to keep the cancer away for a few years.
In November 2015, blood tests showed the Multiple Myeloma cancer started to return. His doctors used newly developed chemotherapy drugs that stopped the spread of Dave's cancer. This success of the new drugs will let Dave receive a second bone marrow transplant - now called a stem cell transplant, in the next week at the hospital at Penn.
We are asking for your help with Dave’s “GoFundMe” to help ease the financial burden his second stem cell transplant and ongoing chemo.
Thanks for being part of the effort to help Dave get into remission again. Help spread the word for a speedy recovery!
