Support Groups

In the US, there is a network of 150 myeloma-specific support groups that hold regular meetings. We encourage you to click the button below to locate a group in your area and connect with other myeloma survivors and caregivers. The IMF applauds the efforts and commitment of these groups, and conducts an annual Summit to offer help, training, and encouragement to support group leaders.

If you would like to start a group in your area, the IMF can help. Contact our Senior Director Robin Tuohy at rtuohy@myeloma.org or 203-206-3536
