John Ricco

Author and 8-year multiple myeloma survivor

John is an eight year multiple myeloma survivor. He was initially diagnosed in June 2000 and went into three months of chemotherapy, followed by pheresis, high dose chem, radiation and then an autologous stem cell transplant in late 2000. He did have some side effects with diabetes and blood clots, which were treated and disappeared when treatment ended. All of that put John in a solid nearly seven year remission.

He relapsed in January 2008, and went through three cycles of chemotherapy, pheresis, high dose chemo and a second autologous stem cell transplant with stem cells saved from 2000.

John retired from a 32 year career as a CPA and CFO. He is author of a recently published book: The Ride of Your Life Fighting Cancer with Attitude. He is an active volunteer with cancer organizations and his local church. To watch John’s Powerful Patient video, click here.
