Meet other patients, carers and family members at your local Myeloma Support Group.
Currently, there are 117 support groups in the UK and Ireland that are listed on our website. Most of these are myeloma-specific, but there are also several general haematology groups that welcome those affected by myeloma. Some groups are run by patients, carers or family members, others by healthcare professionals (i.e. nurses), and each group varies in their size, the frequency they meet and format. We provide support, information and resources to the group leaders, to make sure everyone who attends gets the best level of support.
Support Groups can benefit patients, families and carers by providing emotional support, friendship and relief from isolation. They also offer the chance to share information and experiences with those in a similar situation.
