Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

For the benefit of our readers, multiple myeloma is a blood cancer - it is a cancer of the plasma cells in the bone marrow, which are a vital part of the immune system.

Other names for this condition are plasma cell dyscrasia, plasma cell myeloma, multiple plasmacytoma, and plasmacytoma of bone. Treatment options currently available include drugs, radiation, and bone marrow transplants.

I'm very sorry that your sisters cancer has spread. We cannot say what treatment your sister needs -she will need to make an immediate treatment plan with her doctors. Please take a look at the treatment options available and stories from other readers in our MM section here (cut and paste) : https://www.empowher.com/condition/multiple-myeloma
