Support Group Events
The Delaware Multiple Myeloma Information and Networking Group met for the first time in January 2011 at Eden Hill Medical Center in Dover. It was established to raise awareness about multiple myeloma, a complex and often mis-diagnosed blood cancer that begins in the bone marrow and attacks and destroys bone.
The Delaware Myeloma Group, meets in two venues: Eden Hill Medical Center, Dover, and, as of 2016, also at Lavender Fields at Warington Manor, Milton, Delaware. We serve the Delaware Peninsula and shore communities.
Affiliated with the International Multiple Myeloma Foundation network of support groups, we provide a forum for members to share their personal experiences with myeloma and become in- formed about the latest Research and clinical trials.
To empower the myeloma community with information, education, support and hope
- To educate about the dis- ease, side-effects, treatments, clinical trials, pain manage- ment and quality of life issues
- To provide a forum for patients, caregivers, family and friends to share informa- tion and concerns about finances, insurance, work issues as well as medical resources.
- To be a community of hope and support to each other.
- To promote awareness and advocacy about multiple myeloma within the community at large.
The group meets six times a year on Saturdays from 1:00 -- 3:00p.m. Dates for upcoming year published in the Fall.
