Support Groups

The IMF is often asked by patients if we know of support groups in their areas where they can meet others dealing with myeloma. There is a worldwide network of more than 150 myeloma support groups that hold regular meetings for members of the myeloma community.

Although the IMF does not sponsor these groups, we support their efforts and conduct annual summits for myeloma support group leaders. We encourage you to seek them out. Use the menu below for a list of the groups that we are aware of in your area.

Canada : New Brunswick

Fredericton/St. John

New Brunswick Multiple Myeloma Support Group

The purpose of this newly formed group is to offer patients facing the diagnosis of multiple myeloma, and their caregivers, the opportunity to connect with others in New Brunswick who are dealing with this disease.

Our aim is:

  • to increase the awareness of multiple myeloma within New Brunswick and
  • to provide information and encouragement from a patient perspective
