Wisconsin Support Group Update
News from the Madison, Wisconsin support group

The Madison, Wisconsin multiple myeloma support group was formed in September 1999. It started as regular get-togethers of three myeloma patients and their spouses.

The group now lists 30 myeloma patients as members and has regular monthly meetings. Recent gatherings have featured guest speakers: a social worker, a psychiatrist and an internationally recognized authority on issues related to pain management, Dr. June Dahl of the Department of Pharmacology, UW Medical School.

For more information, please contact Chuck Koval at (608) 238-5466, e-Mail: cfkoval@facstaff.wisc.edu

Let us know about your group and we'll spread the word. If you are considering organizing a myeloma support group in your area, please call the IMF - we're here to help.
