    Hello Phillip,

    I’ve been following your blog for some time now and it’s nice to read about how well you are responding to Pomalidomide. I hope that you will enjoy many years without chemo once your M Protein is undetectable in your blood. I believe that you’ll be one of the Myeloma patients who will be cured of this disease in the very near future.

    All the best,
    Marilyn
