About Multiple Myeloma

Multiple Myeloma is an incurable cancer of the plasma cell, with a five-year survival rate of only 32 percent -- one of the lowest of all cancers.

Approximately 50,000 people in the United States are living with multiple myeloma and an estimated 16,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.

Although the peak age of onset of multiple myeloma is 65 to 70 years of age, recent statistics suggest that incidence is increasing and at an earlier age.
