Covid Update

The IMF applauds the efforts of the volunteer leaders that conduct local myeloma support group meetings and virtual meetings.

The IMF is cautiously optimistic for local support groups to return back to in-person meetings when it’s safe in your community. We suggest that each group follow local, state and federal guidelines to help the volunteer leaders to determine when it will be safe to start meeting in-person again. The IMF will continue to provide Zoom licenses to all myeloma support groups that still meet virtually or have hybrid meetings.  Please contact the group leader for meeting details.

You may also wish to refer to www.cdc.gov for information and guidance on specifics for travel, vaccinations, variants and when/how to gather safely.

We now meet in-person at our library location and simultaneously via a Zoom meeting.  Those that are able to meet in person may join us at our library location and we will see the rest of you virtually through Zoom.

To obtain an invitation for the Zoom meeting, please contact the group leaders at [email protected].​  Walk-ins are welcome at the library.

Welcome to the North Dakota Multiple Myeloma Support Group. Our support group helps patients diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and their caregivers deal with this incurable, but treatable cancer. The format for our support group includes time for discussion, guest lecturers, sharing of educational information, and topics that are chosen by group members.

Our support group is NOT group therapy, but is led by a Multiple Myeloma survivor and focuses on learning how to manage current concerns and situations. There is no cost to the participants and our group meetings are open to all people affected by Multiple Myeloma, including spouses, children, and relatives.

Studies have found that support groups can enhance self-esteem, reduce depression, decrease anxiety and improve relationships with family members and friends.  The North Dakota Multiple Myeloma Support Group can help you cope better with your diagnosis and increase your knowledge of Multiple Myeloma and its treatment.
