ASH 2016: Patient Perspective with Tiffany Williams

| Tiffany Williams

In this video, three-year myeloma survivor and co-leader of a the Charleston Area Multiple Myeloma Networking Group, attended the 58th American Society of Hematology annual meeting–her first experience at ASH. She shares that her impression was “overwhelming, but in a positive way.” She describes how she was unsure of what to expect, but left knowing that she can continue on this journey of hope and be able to inspire others. Her two main takeaways:

  • Being a valued part of discussion in meetings with myeloma experts
  • Being in awe of the breadth and depth of knowledge of the other Support Group Leaders in attendance

Tiffany wraps up this video by saying, “I think there is a lot of work to be done. I am leaving with a sense of empowerment that I thought I came with, but I had no clue how empowered I would leave.”
