Covid Update

The IMF applauds the efforts of the volunteer leaders that conduct local and virtual myeloma support group meetings.  We are cautiously optimistic for local support groups to return back to in-person or hybrid meetings (combination of in-person and virtual) when it is safe in each community.

Leaders and groups are encouraged to use this updated tool and guidance from the CDC to help each group to decide when and how to transition to in-person or hybrid meetings.  The IMF will continue to provide Zoom licenses to all myeloma support groups that continue to meet virtually or have hybrid meetings.

About Us

The Atlanta Area Support Group has expanded to two groups with meeting locations on the north and south sides of Metro Atlanta. 

Our group; Southside Atlanta Area Multiple Myeloma Support group was formed on June 26, 2006 by a multiple myeloma patient; Doris Morgan, who felt that it was essential for both patients and their community of supporters to have a place to network where they could both increase their knowledge about multiple myeloma and support other people going through the same experience within her community. 

We are glad you found the Southside Atlanta Area Multiple Myeloma Support Group and hope that you will use us to help you understand the Multiple Myeloma journey. 

We are multiple myeloma patients, multiple myeloma survivors, family members, caregivers/friends, and members of the medical community and/or non-profit organizations. Most importantly we are here for you, let us know how we may be of help to you and how we can serve your specific needs for support. 

A cancer diagnosis is at best difficult for the patient, but is a journey that all the patient’s loved ones will travel. We want you to be empowered to be the best patient, caregiver, family member, and friend in the process. Gain assess to resources and aide. Learn all you can during our meetings and share your experiences and knowledge, if you would like; it can be of help to another member of our network.  

 

In this Health Line episode Lyn Vaugn talks to IMF Support Group Director Nancy Bruno and Atlanta area multiple myeloma patients Kimberly Starbuck and Joe Brown.
