Ryan Anthony

Ryan's Story

Almost two years ago, Dallas Symphony Orchestra principal trumpet, Ryan Anthony, had just completed a guest appearance with his old group, Canadian Brass, and wasn't feeling well. After the concert, Ryan told his wife, Niki, that he felt like his entire body was "jangling" as he ran off-stage.

Recent chronic aches & pains had sent the 43-yr old to multiple doctors searching for the cause. Blood tests revealed abnormalities but multiple doctors reassured him that "it can't be cancer" because Ryan was too young to be a candidate for the types of cancers that caused his symptoms. Fortunately, one doctor decided to test for cancer "just in case". The Monday after the Canadian Brass concert, Ryan & Niki got the call that no one anticipates or is prepared for – especially with two young children in elementary school – Ryan had been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a terminal cancer of the bone marrow that most often appears in patients 70 and older.
