Voices Podcast – Season 2 Episode #6: Then and Now with Multiple Myeloma Patient Linda Solomon

Linda and her husband, Alan.

When Linda Solomon, a trained medical technologist, saw the results of her routine complete blood count in 2009, she knew it wasn’t good news.

Solomon, then 61, was diagnosed with stage III multiple myeloma – and given three years to survive. Several rounds of chemotherapy, two stem cell transplants, and eight years later, Solomon is still here, although life looks different than it did before.

In the latest episode of Voices: Then and Now, Solomon recounts her treatment experience and coming to terms with a late-stage cancer. She is also joined by her husband, Alan, to talk about his caregiving experience and what life is like for them now.

In the second season of our Voices podcast series, we invite Dana-Farber patients to share their experiences being diagnosed with and treated for cancer, and discuss with a caregiver how the experience shaped them, how they are doing now, and what advice they have for other patients. Visit Dana-Farber’s podcast page for more information on other cancer podcast series.
