East Lancashire Myeloma Support Group (formerly Blackburn)

East Lancashire Myeloma Support Group is a small, informal, friendly group of patients and family members affected by myeloma.

It is run by Geraldine Greenwood and is held in the bar of the Golf Club in Wilpshire.

The Group meets every month in the evenings for an informal get together over drinks where there is an opportunity for patients and family members to chat about their experiences and learn from one another.

Occasionally guest speakers are also invited to come along and talk about various aspects of living with myeloma, with an opportunity for questions and answers.

Anyone affected by myeloma is welcome to attend the group and further information is available from Geraldine.
