Myeloma Information

The third edition of I have WHAT?, the intriguing book about multiple myeloma by Debra Berenson, is now available. The wife of a well-known oncologist shares patients’ candid cancer stories and also provides useful information from doctors and other healthcare professionals who treat multiple myeloma, Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia, amyloidosis, and MGUS.


This updated edition of I have WHAT? is the real story about multiple myeloma by Debra Berenson and is now available for purchase.

The first and second editions have been sold out! I have recently finished the work on the third edition. I am excited to announce that there have been many new medical advances since I wrote the book. Jim (Dr. Berenson) has updated his chapter regarding the newest treatments. Also, I have added new chapters that I believe will contribute a great amount of useful information to the book.

I am so happy that patients and their families and caregivers find I Have WHAT? a helpful resource. It is shocking, devastating and scary all at the same time when someone is told that he or she has cancer! It helps to know that other people have been in the exact same situation as you are right now and how they have learned to deal with all that is involved in the diagnosis and treatments for these types of cancers.

How did they face the diagnosis? How were they told the news? How did they tell their families and friends? What were their symptoms? What medications or therapies have they been on? How did they respond to each medication? What worked? What didn’t work? What made them feel better and what made them feel worse? How are they feeling now? How long have they been battling multiple myeloma, MGUS, Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia, or amyloidosis? Do they attend a support group? Who is treating them? Patients and/or caregivers commonly discuss these topics in detail.

This book provides useful information to cope with these issues and many others.

Onward to finding a cure!

Best Wishes, Debra Berenson
