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

Dover group

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.

Our Mission

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.

Meetings

The group meets six times a year on Saturdays from 1:00 -- 3:00p.m. Dates for upcoming year published in the Fall.

Please contact us for our annual Calendar.

Programs include speakers from the myeloma medical community, oncology nurses, and physicians who support myeloma patients relative to possible side effects and integrative therapies.

Meetings are held at two locations:

Eden Hill Medical Center. Third Floor Conference Room, 200 Banning Street (off Rt.8), Dover, DE 19904

Lavender Fields at Warrington Manor, 18864 Cool Spring Road, Milton, DE 19962
