Peter’s diagnosis is Multiple Myeloma. Multiple Myeloma is a blood cancer of plasma cells within the bone marrow. Since the cancer affects white blood cells, it undermines Pete's ability to fight infection, it thins and breaks bones, results in debilitating pain, causes anemia, and even kidney failure. Although there is no cure for multiple myeloma yet, the disease can be managed for a time. He will need to undergo chemotherapy treatment and potentially a bone marrow transplant and/or stem cell transplant to send it into remission. It will return.
Only 1 of his fractured vertebrae was able to be treated and somewhat stabilized with a minimally invasive spinal procedure. He continues to endure pain from the remaining compression fractures and is not able to walk without assistance.
Pete will not be able to return to work. Our goal is to raise enough money to provide him with a clean and healing living environment and money for bills not covered by insurance.
Please do what you can to give Pete (“PK”), a true friend, devoted husband, profoundly prolific musical genius, legendary surfer and soul brother his best chance to heal.
Thank you for all of your support, prayers, and love.
