The L.A. Support Group offers the latest information, unbiased support, and fact-based hope for myeloma patients and their caregivers, family and friends.  

Participants share and compare their experiences with others who may be looking at symptoms, tests, or treatments for the first time. We also welcome experts who provide special insights into different aspects of the disease and its treatment.  Just as important, we always reserve time for your questions.
