Honora Miller is a Myeloma patient, diagnosed at age 49 in 2015. She is currently in remission with ongoing monthly maintenance chemotherapy after receiving several lines of treatment including a stem cell transplant. A trained social worker and mediator, she is now on disability and in the process of adapting to a “new normal” that does not enable her to continue to work professionally. She focuses on intentional efforts to be as healthy as she can be, both physically and emotionally, while enjoying quality time with her family. Maintaining a positive outlook, continually educating herself about Myeloma, and learning how to be an effective self-advocate, have been crucial to managing what has been a life-changing diagnosis. Honora holds a Masters of Social Service Degree and a Masters in Law and Social Policy from the Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work. She has a Bachelors Degree in English with a Minor in Sociology from Temple University and studied Sociology & Anthropology and Women’s Studies at Swarthmore College. She is passionate about patient empowerment as well as sharing information and experiences with other Myeloma patients and caregivers to help us all achieve the best quality of life possible. Honora is delighted to serve as the Myeloma Network Manager for the Patient Empowerment Network.
