On Wednesday 19th October Bloodwise Ambassador and myeloma patient Newton McGrath (pictured) will be coming in to the office to answer your questions about his experiences with blood cancer in our latest patient Facebook Live Q&A.

Newton was diagnosed in 2007 after a company health check revealed he had high blood pressure. Doctors then ran further tests revealing abnormal paraprotein levels - a key indicator of myeloma. 

After regular check-ups Newton's paraprotein levels continued to rise so he began treatment which culminated in a stem cell transplant in 2010. He is now back at work, part of a clinicial trial and determined to raise awareness after knowing nothing about blood cancer prior to his own diagnosis.

Newton is happy to talk about any aspect of his experiences including the prospect of future treatment and his decision to take part in a clinical trial. You'll be able to ask questions on our Facebook page on the day however we're also encouraging questions in advance.

If you have a question that you'd like to ask Newton please email us at

Newton's Q&A will be streamed live from 11 am on the Bloodwise Facebook page and is a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out more about life with myeloma.
