You Are Not Alone!

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.

Minnesota’s Support Community
Minnesota is the home of two internationally recognized leaders in Myeloma research: The Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota, along with many other hospitals, clinics, and cancer centers which, not only treat Myeloma, but also take part in trials.  Along with these institutions we also have very active support groups.  Their locations are:

Twin Cities (St. Louis Park)

Stillwater

Rochester

Fairmont Area

All of the group’s meet once a month on different dates except the Fairmont Area support group which meets every other month.  Please visit each group’s web page to see what they’re up to this month.
