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).

Each group will decide the meeting format that works best for their members: to remain virtual, or to meet in person, hybrid or alternating hybrid.  Please contact group leader below for details.

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
