Matt was hospitalized in 2013 with pneumonia, an illness he kept battling. After another round of antibiotics, he felt better, but the blood work came back and told his care team he had multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood. He started a clinical trial: 8 cycles of a 3-drug combination, with the option to potentially have a stem cell transplant of his own stem cells for later. As of July 2014, Matt is off of the cycles of treatment and now on maintenance therapy. He's staying on 1 of the drugs, an oral medication that he can do at home; does blood work once a week locally and then goes in to see Dr. Anderson once a month. Matt is married to his wife of 11 years, Carolyn, and they have three children: 4- and 6-year old boys, and a 9 year old girl. Dr. Anderson has helped shape new ways of treating multiple myeloma over the past 10 years - it has gone from a death sentence to being more of a chronic disease.
