If you have been living with Multiple Myeloma; whether you are newly diagnosed or a long-time survivor, asymptomatic or with bone damage, sufferer or caregiver, you are not alone. The Myeloma community is strong, informed, and involved. Even the most experienced veteran can find battling Myeloma daunting but why fight that battle alone? Come to a support group meeting and you will find that there are people who have already lived through whatever you’re enduring now. Take advantage of their experience and share what you’ve learned with others. Most of all don’t be afraid to ask questions… that’s how we all grow stronger.
