My "Tough love" interview with CureTalk

Hi folks.  Hope you are all well.

Not so much an update, but I did want to let you know that I was recently interviewed by a website called CureTalk, who has published it here.

I will warn you that while some of you may feel I am an unabashed UAMS apologist here, I do try to keep a pretty even keel when discussing therapies and I *never* want anybody with this disease to feel that on this blog I challenge or disapprove of their therapeutic choices.  This disease belongs to each of us, and we each much make decisions on our treatment based on our psychology, our physiology, our age, our outlook, the specifics of our disease, and other considerations.

At any rate, in this interview, I don't pull any punches.  I do believe MM can be cured, and I do believe UAMS has the best chance of doing so.  That still doesn't make it right for everybody, but it did for me.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Awesome interview! You are a strong man and a fearless leader for those who are unfortunate enough to follow in your MM footsteps. Keep on keepin' on. Thank you for your inspiration. I love you always.

  2. You are a terrific spokesman for MM in so many ways... it takes people like you and Lonnie Nesseler to bring a new awareness to all the vagaries of this disease and we are lucky to have your voices out in the public forum.

  3. Awesome! I'll read it. I was interviewed too, but as a caregiver and mine isn't up yet. :) You are always the guy out in front Nick! Hugs to Jill.

  4. Thank you Nick for the interview. It was a pleasure to read your story. Hope you are in for our panel discussion too.

  5. loved the interview Nick! keep up the good work!
