Gloucestershire Myeloma Support Group

Gloucestershire Myeloma Support Group is a small, welcoming and friendly group which meets once a month at the Maggie’s Centre in Cheltenham. Further information about the Centre can be found here.

The Group is run by Ellen from the Maggie’s Centre, and is occasionally run by the Haematology Nurse Specialist, Claire. There are sometimes guest speakers that are invited to give talks on aspects of living with, managing and treating myeloma.

The Group offers a chance for patients, family members and friends to get together and chat about their experiences.
