Iva Jo Hilton | Multiple Myeloma Survivor

Ivo Jo Hilton | Multiple=

“I don’t think I would still be here if I hadn’t come to UAMS. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma on March 30, 2010. My husband found out about the Myeloma Institute online, and my doctor in Jackson said that it was the best place in the world to come for myeloma. I agree that this is the best place I could have gone.

I get to go home for Christmas and will return in three months for a check-up. I’m looking forward to living life to the fullest every day. When you’re diagnosed with cancer, it makes you see life through different eyes. Now I just focus on two things: family and God.”
