The Toronto & District Multiple Myeloma Support Group
The Toronto & District Multiple Myeloma Support Group is for myeloma patients and their spouses, caregivers, loved ones, significant others, family members and friends. It grew out of a need for information and mutual support in dealing with this rare cancer. We have members across the Greater Toronto area. We invite you to join us as we share support, comfort, information and friendship.

Every second month we have a meeting which often has a guest speaker knowledgeable in myeloma, in related health conditions, or issues affecting myeloma patients. These meetings inform us on the advances in treatments, including new treatment approaches, emerging therapies, and managing side-effects. While these meetings are mainly informational in nature, there are many opportunities to speak informally with other attendees and to share experiences.
