Stephen Panther | Multiple Myeloma survivor

“I had just lost my mom to cancer, and while I was attending her funeral I started having chest pains. The doctor said I had pneumonia and that there were problems with my blood indicating myeloma.

We wanted a second opinion so we came to UAMS, and we never left. I’ve been in remission since after my first stem cell transplant. Today we head back home for three months.

I’m looking forward to getting back to gardening, fishing and spending time with my kids and grandkids.”
