For months, Becky Richards experienced a backache. After a number of trips to doctors, she was finally diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Becky has had three stem cell transplants and was part of the Total Therapy II protocol in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1999. Despite knowing about myeloma statistics, Becky proclaimed that she was going to create her own statistic. As her oncologist commented, “I have a fighter on my hands.” Becky continues to have this fighting spirit today.
