Bev - Myeloma Warrior

Bev Long, member of the Greater Richmond Multiple Myeloma Foundation, is a flutist for the Richmond (VA) Concert Band, is part of beautiful concert band performances that were recorded since the pandemic hit and severely limited the opportunity for the concert band to play live. 

Bev noted that the concerts clearly demonstrate resilience, for both the band and Bev personally. Being able to play in the band again is a personal achievement for Bev.  Bev took off a year from the band (2018) for treatment & transplant after the diagnosis.  (This included surgery and rehab for a broken arm, thanks to myeloma!)   

Bev can be seen and heard playing her flute in these concerts below.
