Myeloma Voice: Arlene Preisendorf

Diagnosed with myeloma in February 2009 at the age of 47, Arlene Preisendorf recalls contacting Support Group Leader Dr. Jim Omel just a few days later. She shares how Jim connected with her and her husband by talking about his own experience with the disease, and also providing them with breadth of IMF pamphlets on myeloma.
