Covid Update

The IMF applauds the efforts of the volunteer leaders that conduct local myeloma support group meetings and virtual meetings.

The IMF is cautiously optimistic for local support groups to return back to in-person meetings when it’s safe in your community. We suggest that each group follow local, state and federal guidelines to help the volunteer leaders to determine when it will be safe to start meeting in-person again. The IMF will continue to provide Zoom licenses to all myeloma support groups that still meet virtually or have hybrid meetings.  Please contact the group leader for meeting details.

You may also wish to refer to www.cdc.gov for information and guidance on specifics for travel, vaccinations, variants and when/how to gather safely.

About Us

The Rhode Island Multiple Myeloma Support Group was established by Carol Murray-Rossi in 2005.

Carol was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2003. Eager to find information on the disease and hoping to meet others facing the same challenges, she searched for a support group to meet her needs.

There were many different support groups for cancer patients in R.I., though none were specifically for patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

Carol decided to start The RIMMSG in 2005. This patient run support group remains the only support group in the state of R.I., specific to multiple myeloma.

Shortly after advertising the newly formed group, Carol was contacted by the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF), offering their support.  The IMF has worked closely with the RIMMSG ever since
