Ms. Peel is a 67 year old African American woman who was born and raised in Virginia. She has been living in New Hampshire just over seven years. Ms. Peel lives with her daughter and family. She provides childcare for her two grandchildren while the parents work. Ms. Peel began having pains in her neck, back, and chest after taking a long trip to Virginia by car. She believed the air conditioning of the car brought on this pain. Ms. Peel was seen by her primary care provider and diagnosed with muscle strain. She was referred to a massage therapist for treatment. After several weeks of therapy, the pain worsened and Ms. Peel was seen again by her provider. An X-ray was ordered and results revealed two fractures in the cervical and thoracic region of her spine. Ms. Peel was sent for an MRI which confirmed the fractures and revealed several tumors in the fractured areas. The office called the home where Ms. Peel lived and asked that her daughter call the physician immediately. Upon receiving the message, her daughter called the physician and was told her mother had a cancer called Multiple Myeloma (The physician did not communicate the information to Ms. Peel who is the patient and who answered the phone). The daughter was told that her mother would be referred to an oncologist immediately and that she should accompany her mother to the appointment. At the appointment with the oncologist, the oncology nurse greets Ms. Peel and her daughter and begins to collect information.
