Larry,
Diagnosed in 2011. Taking DARZALEX® in
combination with Revlimid® (lenalidomide)
and dexamethasone

“When you hear the word cancer you get scared—quite frankly, angry, why me?”

Larry was enjoying his life in Myrtle Beach with his wife, Barbara, and dog, Baby Bear, when he was diagnosed in the early stages of multiple myeloma. When his disease progressed, he was not eligible for stem cell transplant. His doctor enrolled him in the MAIA clinical trial.

Deb,
Diagnosed in 2009. Taking DARZALEX® as monotherapy

“One of the things with cancer is that it never takes place at a good time…”

Deb, along with her husband, Harry, had their retirement plans turned upside down when Deb was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. After being on multiple treatments, she is now responding to DARZALEX®.

Jim,
Diagnosed in 2015. Taking DARZALEX® in combination with Revlimid® (lenalidomide) and dexamethasone

“So every treatment, every doctor’s appointment, and then every football game, I’ve worn this exact jersey…”

Jim was on the verge of 50 and training to run his first marathon when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. After he experienced his first relapse, his doctor recommended DARZALEX®.

Matt,
Diagnosed in 2011. Taking DARZALEX® in combination with Pomalyst® (pomalidomide) and dexamethasone

“How I see myself and my purpose in the world has changed.”

Matt’s journey to his diagnosis was confusing and overwhelming. After receiving prior therapies and relapsing, his doctors decided to add DARZALEX® as part of his regimen.

Harry,
Caregiver since 2009
“I even had a little jersey made up that I would wear on occasion, which says ‘cancer-caddie’...”

With a positive attitude and sense of humor, Harry is more than a caregiver. He’s a well-informed “caddie” helping Deb navigate the sometimes tricky course of multiple myeloma.
