We take the health and safety of our myeloma support group members seriously and will continue to hold our meetings virtually to ensure the safety of our members. For additional updates on COVID-19 coronavirus, please click this link:

Meeting Info

Note: If you are feeling ill, coughing or sneezing, please do not attend the meeting! Myeloma patients are much more susceptible to getting sick because of our weakened immune systems.  Cold and flu season is even riskier for us. Please be courteous to your fellow patients. Thank You!
