His smile, upbeat attitude and outgoing personality immediately draw people to him.
“I’m a people person,” he says with a laugh that belies the pain he now endures.
Norris was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a condition that has led to fractures in his back and hips. According to the Mayo Clinic website, multiple myeloma is a cancer that forms in a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell. These cells make antibodies and fight infection. Multiple myeloma causes cancer cells to accumulate in the bone marrow where they crowd out the healthy blood cells.
“People have it all over the world,” he said. “There are treatments but you can’t cure it.”
He said possibilities include chemotherapy, radiation, stem cell transplant, and alternative medicines.
“I will do something,” said Norris, who said he is now home resting as he considers his options. “It’s possible treatments could extend my life a little. I am on pain medication, all kinds of medications.”
