The 12th Annual Hicks Harris Ferguson Multiple Myeloma Virtual Symposium and Paris Films, LLC will premiere a nationwide virtual screening of the documentary STRONG. LIVING WITH MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

Like many adult men, Paris thought he was invincible and had a major wakeup call in October 2019 when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. When he was diagnosed, Paris was a healthy 40-year-old who exercised, ate well, and maintained a healthy lifestyle.

From moments after his diagnosis to learning how to walk again, cameras documented Paris’ journey through the trials and tribulations – detailing the excruciating process through it all.

Cancer absolutely uproots families and turns their lives upside down. Luckily for Paris, he couldn’t have had a better support system behind him. His wife, three kids, and two best friends were massively supportive and alongside Paris every step of the way. Unfortunately, as cancer never is, Paris’ journey was not smooth sailing. He needed to start chemo immediately, but his health insurance didn’t cover the treatment, so he had to fight with the hospital, along with his health insurer to get the treatment he needed. Eventually, he was forced to transfer hospitals and get new health insurance to ultimately save his life.

STRONG. LIVING WITH MULTIPLE MYELOMA documentary serves to provide everybody with a powerful and inspirational story from a unique, up-close and personal perspective.
