Virtual Support Group for Young Patients and Caregivers
Myeloma Canada is pleased to announce the official launch of a virtual support group on Facebook for young patients and caregivers impacted by myeloma. This is a closed group, offering a safe environment for young individuals to connect and exchange with others who are faced with the unique challenges of having to live with the disease at a young age. This virtual support group eliminates geographical and language barriers (with Facebook’s translate feature). The information shared on this page is not visible to the general public and all members must submit a request in order to join the group. The group is monitored and managed by Michelle Oana, Associate Director of Development and Communications at Myeloma Canada. She herself, was also a young caregiver for nearly 8.5 years, and is happy to be sharing her experiences and insight with the members.
