About the Author

A resident of Shaker Heights, Ohio, James Bond is a 29-year survivor of an incurable blood cancer, Multiple Myeloma. Four bone marrow transplants, six clinical trials, and an amazing support network along with countless miles pedaled for charity all play key roles in this unique 007 story.

After retiring from his accounting career in 2007, James and his wife, Kathleen, now share their story to patients around the world through an oncology pharmaceutical mentorship program.


James Bond is a walking miracle and shows American Cancer Society research dollars are impacting people’s lives.
