I have done some due diligence on all of these myeloma specialists and they all meet or exceed my expectations of what is required to be a multiple myeloma specialist. It is therefore my believe that their survival rate and life expectancy performance will be greater than the National Cancer Institutes averages. I have found that all of the doctors that have committed to providing survival data and then later provided this data have all exceeded the National Cancer Institutes SEER averages. I therefore believe this group will be no different. The survival rate statistic that you can expect to see are from the following myeloma specialists and hospitals.
Edward Faber, Jr., MD - Assistant Professor, Internal Medicine - University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE
Rafael Fonseca MD -Chair, Department of Medicine - Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Arizona
Craig Hofmeister MD - Assistant professor of medicine - The James Cancer Center, Ohio State University - Columbus,OH

Ravi Vij, MD - Medical oncologist, bone marrow transplant specialist - Washington University School of Medicine - St. Louis,MO
In addition, I have been in contact with Paul Richardson, MD of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, and hope to be able to add them to the list as well. I have made other requests for participation which are still pending, and continue to get recommendations from myeloma patients, care givers, and myeloma specialists. I have found that as time goes on the momentum for this project continues to build. Thanks to all who have been supportive of this effort.
