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.

first virtual meeting

We enjoyed our first VIRTUAL support group meeting on April 8. These virtual meetings can inspire us to connect and be social and supportive, while we physically distance, and strive to be kind and do the best for everyone.

We had the opportunity to see each other and catch up on life as well as myeloma patient safety and the coronavirus. I think what we enjoyed most was just sharing and laughing together.

About Us

Michael and Robin TuohyMichael and Robin Tuohy started the CT Multiple Myeloma Fighters Information Group in the Spring of 2001 with the help of the International Myeloma Foundation.   Michael was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2000 at the age of 36.  Our support group was the 1st support group specifically for multiple myeloma patients in the State of CT.  Myeloma patients, caregivers, family and friends are welcome to attend our meetings.

Our mission is to be an ongoing resource for information, support, shared experiences and hope for persons with multiple myeloma, their family and friends.

Our focus is to reach out to the myeloma community and empower them through education, provide support, and let them know they are not alone.   Education is key in the fight against myeloma.  Although we are not medical professionals, we strive to provide the most current information in myeloma treatment, clinical trials, side effects, pain management and quality of life issues by our affiliation with the International Myeloma Foundation.  Patients talk about things that doctors don’t – like insurance, bills, assistance, work and how to go about life in general.  Our shared experiences help each other!

If you would like to share your story please contact us.  By sharing our experiences we can help each other.  Knowledge is Power!
