(By his wife, Veronica.)

My husband Chris is 43 and has MM. He is also on dialysis. Nevada is very bad in their medical coverage for MM. They just want me to put my husband in hospice, bit I refuse. He has had this for 4 years and 3 months. Recently, he fractured his femur, iliac bone, and part of his arm. I have been fighting with doctors here to transfer him to the Mission Viejo, CA hospital that specializes in MM. The doctor in NV is fighting me on this and Chris has not received chemo for two months. He was also just starting radiation but stopped.

Please tell me what or where is a good place for MM, since the doctors here don't want to do anything for him. I want to him to get treatment, but have no idea what to do anymore. If you could give me any info or help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time reading this.
