    thank you 🙂 i dont think you have to divulge it when going for a new job. but at some point you will need to advise. its a difficult one as you would like to think there is no discrimination. henry has been up front with employers and they’ve been v good. but he is in remission and doing very well. long may it continue for both our husbands xx

    • I just want to say how fabulous your Carer Experience piece is and I wonder if you could put it up on line anyway so it can be shared for others who aren’t members of the Forum (or who received Myeloma Matters)? Thanks again for your wonderful article. Helped me.

He said I am his rock and got him through his treatment and that me and the children are all that he lives for. We have made adjustments to our life. Henry…[Read more]
