Lynette Heniff was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2007 at the age of 37 after her bloodwork was found to be out of range during a routine physical. She was referred to a hematologist that confirmed the diagnosis and referred her to MD Anderson Cancer Center—Lynette was already planning to seek a second opinion there. Just a few months later, she underwent an autologous stem cell transplant. Lynette is now on a maintenance therapy and, other than the challenges of weekly appointments, leads a full life. She credits the support of her family, friends and co-workers in helping her get through the difficult treatment. In her spare time, Lynette enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, as well as scrapbooking, exercising and volunteering at her church.
