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.

About Us

The West Bend Multiple Myeloma Support Group was established by Rob (MM survivor since 2006) and Sue Enright in November, 2008. After attending groups in Madison and Racine for over 2 years, they moved to Jackson, Wisconsin in the summer of 2008. With no myeloma group in the immediate area, the natural next step for them was to form a group in the West Bend area for other myeloma survivors and their families. Read the news article to learn more about how the group was formed.

Our goal is to provide hope and encouragement to others who walk in our shoes, and to help myeloma patients become better educated about the disease and it’s treatment. Our belief that the greatest fear is the fear of the unknown drives our desire to help others to become better informed, while helping to spread the word that “Knowledge is Power!”

Future meeting topics include: Talking with Your Doctor; Nutrition and Exercise for Cancer Patients; Treatment Side Effects; Understanding Serum Free Light Chain tests; Stem Cell Transplants; Bone Disease; and many others.  We will also have an annual visit from the International Myeloma Foundation’s area representative, who will share the latest in myeloma news.

The WBMM Support Group is proud to be affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation and sponsored by St. Joseph’s Hospital in West Bend.  We thank them wholeheartedly for their devotion to helping cancer patients live better, stronger lives.
