CNN Story

While I was in Washington DC a month ago, CNN interviewed me for their "Human Factor" segment - a guy running marathons with cancer. The story aired Tuesday morning, Nov 29, on their American Morning show.

It is available on CNN's blog pages: http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/category/human-factor/, along with a short written story.

The video is also available without the text here: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/health/2011/11/29/hf-don-wright-marathon.cnn.

It will probably air again at least once on Headline News, sometime during the week. Finally, it is likely to be included in the Dr. Sanjay Gupta MD show, which airs at 6:30 am CST on Saturday and Sunday.

Hi Don, I read your story with a smile as we share many common interests. I was diagnosed with MM in July 2011 after foot surgery for a running injury. Your supplement list looks like mine! I competed in several Duathlons last March. My last one was March 27th at Enchanted Rock near Austin, Tx.

I'm currently scheduled for a stem cell transplant in January. We believe the best path to the longest best quality of life it through an aggressive approach. After 2 round of Velcade/Dex/Cytoxin my cancer is in complete remission. Plasma cell biopsy reduced the amount from 20% in August to less than 1% in November.
