Meet Scott

The BLUM 5K Race is in honor of Scott Blum

I am the daughter of Scott Blum, a current patient at Duke. I was 16 years old when my father was diagnosed with stage 3 Multiple Myeloma. He has been through multiple chemo treatments, a bone marrow transplant, spent a short time in remission and for the past 3+ years takes an oral chemo daily. He has taken part in different clinical trials and speaks on behalf of different drug reps in his efforts to help find a cure for Multiple Myeloma.

Here are some photos inside Scott’s life since he had his transplant. All these things were made possible thanks to the clinical trials that have kept Scott’s counts in the safe zone for 7 years now.

We promise more on Scott’s story coming soon….
