Support Groups

Toronto and District

The Toronto & District Multiple Myeloma Support Group is composed of multiple myeloma survivors and their primary caregivers and grew out of a need for information and mutual support in dealing with this unusual disease. We have members from across the Greater Toronto area. We invite you to join us as we share support, comfort, information and friendship.
The purpose of the group is to explore and discuss the wide range of treatment options and to give myeloma survivors and their loved ones the support and information they need to live longer, stronger lives. In recent years there have been improvements in treatments. We have guest speakers to help educate and increase understanding of topics such as clinical trials, new treatments and coping strategies.
