SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - In the next year, more than 32,000 Americans will be diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the body’s white blood cells called plasma cells.

It’s also expected that almost 13,000 will die from the disease.

Right now, researchers are testing a type of immuno-therapy that unleashes cells into the body designed to destroy the cancer.
