Tony Harbert, Blood Cancer Patient

A super-healthy guy surprised with a cancer diagnosis after routine wellness visit

Tony Harbert


Tony: I've always been a super healthy guy. Run marathons for decades so wasn't expecting anything at my regular yearly physical. At that visit, my blood work revealed high protein levels that concerned my doctor and at that point she referred me to Summa Health. I was diagnosed with this blood cancer, multiple myeloma, at the Cooper Pavilion.

Getting started with treatments was very important and currently going through chemo infusions twice a week. I love Dr. Pleat and the amazing team at Cooper Pavilion. There really is a team and a family attitude there.

I'm still able to train and run marathons. Yes, a lot slower than I used to, but still thankful. I truly view Dr. Pleat and his team as an answer to my prayers.
