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.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at contact@myeloma.ca or toll-free at 1-888-798-5771 with any questions regarding our programs and services.

Remembering Myeloma Canada in your will

By leaving a gift to Myeloma Canada in your will, you can help us in our mission to improve outcomes for myeloma patients, their caregivers, and their families.

In 2000, the life expectancy of a myeloma patient was three to five years. Research, along with the development of new treatments, has increased the average life expectancy of a myeloma patient, with many living 10 years or longer. Your bequest could help advance research and improve patient outcomes.

My multiple myeloma journey began over five years ago in support of my aunt Maggie who sadly passed away in December 2014 of myeloma. Aunt Maggie fought a long, hard battle and taught me to never give up! Her resilience inspired me to advocate for research to make treatment options more accessible for patients like her.
