Andrew’s biggest challenge after receiving his diagnosis was educating himself on this disease. His healthcare team embraced his determination to educate himself, which gave him additional confidence in his doctors. Andrew has kept a positive outlook and is self-motivating. He continues to exercise religiously, routinely riding his bike over 10,000 miles a year and participating in MMRF fundraising cycling events. One motivating factor he had was retirement, although he only wanted to semi-retire. He remains an active grandfather to his four grandchildren. He feels that his multiple myeloma journey has made him a better person in that he is more compassionate and understanding.
