Spending time with the AZ Myeloma Network.

Last Saturday, Kathryn Winter, one of our massage therapists, and I visited the AZ Myeloma Network Conference to donate some time. I can't begin to tell you what an experience it was to see the union of all the professionals, caregivers, patients and supporters under one roof. Despite the afternoon hours when we arrived, the energy was phenomenal. We each sat in on different breakout sessions and listened to concerns, questions and comments facing those afflicted with this deadly cancer. Resources offered were payment assistance (copay relief services) diagnostic testing and risk assessment, support groups and so much more. I was impressed with the Virginia Piper Cancer Center services for cancer patients. If you or a loved one is affected on any level by cancer, visit for more information and stay tuned for next year's conference. Barbara Kavanagh is the founder of this wonderful organization and the energy and persistence you see in her work is just the foundation for the PASSION she holds in helping people with cancer.

Sunday May 1st  is the annual AZ Myeloma Network Race for Hope for ALL Cancers. We hope you can join us in walking or running a 1mile or 3K to help bring hope and better resources to those underserved in our community. Visit to register and join the Lake Pleasant Chiropractic team. We would love to have you!
