Where Your Funds Go
As a non-profit organization created by, and for, people living with multiple myeloma, we strive to strengthen the voice of the Canadian myeloma community and improve outcomes for myeloma patients. Your donation makes everything we do possible: education, awareness, advocacy and research. Thank you.
Your support allows us to:
- Invest in clinical research and help facilitate access to new treatments and therapies in Canada. Since 2010, Myeloma Canada has put an emphasis on advances in research with the creation of the Myeloma Canada Research Network (MCRN) - a unique national research platform advancing scientific knowledge through collaboration and knowledge sharing.

- In 2016, we unveiled the first National Multiple Myeloma Database - a platform collecting relevant patient outcome data to better identify the optimal treatment approaches for the Canadian myeloma community. Thanks to the clinical trials and evidence provided by this new database and MCRN, we will be able to advocate for faster approval and access to new treatments. Click here for more information.
- Distribute over 10,000 Handbooks and InfoGuides to patients, caregivers and the medical community and invest in other much needed educational resources. In fact, in the coming years, we will publish new InfoGuides on immuno-oncology, caregiver support and clinical trials.
- Put myeloma on the map through nationwide campaigns and awareness days in provincial legislatures, as well as through advocacy and support group summits. In 2016, Myeloma Canada was featured over 90 times in the media.
- And much more!
