Who We Are

The Hamilton & District Multiple Myeloma Support Group is comprised of multiple myeloma survivors and their primary caregivers and grew out of the need for information and mutual support in dealing with this unusual disease.

Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the bone marrow. More specifically, it is an uncontrolled growth of the plasma cells. Although there is no cure, there are many approaches to help myeloma patients live better and longer. There remains much controversy about how to treat the disease. The course of treatment is very much dependent on the specifics of the patient's physical, emotional and family situations and the variant of myeloma involved.

The Purpose of the Hamilton & District Multiple Myeloma Support Group is to explore treatment options and to give myeloma survivors and their loved ones the support and information they need to live longer stronger lives.
