Matt Goldman was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in May, 2011 at the age of 49. He is currently in partial remission and is in a maintenance phase of treatment. He had his stem cells collected in December, 2011, but has no plans to undergo a stem cell transplant. Matt’s kidneys were damaged by the myeloma, but he has used diet and nutrition to maintain functioning kidneys. After being diagnosed in 2011, a big challenge was finding information on how to eat to fight cancer and maintain a strong immune system, while not causing further damage to his kidneys. Matt is a land use planner for the Port of Long Beach. He is married and is overprotective of his dog Gracie. He has a blog that documents his journey, www.mattvsmyeloma.com and is also on twitter at @mpg61.
