Update on the COVID-19 pandemic

Information regarding COVID-19 is in constant change, as is the situation regarding vaccination and prioritization for immune-compromised individuals.

If you have any COVID-19-related questions, we’ve created a specific COVID section on our website that can be accessed by clicking here or by selecting the “News & Events” tab from our homepage. In this section, you’ll find the latest news and information about the pandemic in Canada from trustworthy and reliable sources.

Any specific questions that you may have regarding the COVID-19 vaccination, delays between vaccine dosing, and prioritization within your province are best answered by your healthcare team. They’re the ones who know you and your particular situation and are therefore in a position to best address your unique concerns.

Created by, and entirely focused on, Canadians impacted by myeloma, Myeloma Canada is the only national charitable organization committed to providing you with the most up-to-date and reliable information on myeloma. Some of the ways we do this is through our monthly e-newsletter, “Myeloma Matters”, as well as through our social media platforms.

Advocating for Your Loved One

When a person is diagnosed with myeloma, major changes occur in their life. To help your loved one through these changes, you can become their advocate. Advocacy can take on many shapes and forms. Here are a few examples:

  • Sort out the information and services they need and identify the most appropriate person or organization to contact to best address his needs.
  • Attend appointments
  • Learn how the disease is treated and managed. This can help you better understand the specific details of your loved one’s condition so that you can be an active partner when discussing management strategies and a treatment plan with their healthcare team.
  • Involve others to help support your loved one in different ways.
  • Find and join a local myeloma patient support group for your loved one.
