Our History


Prompted by their health professionals, three couples, Bob and Glenys Moran, Brian and Roslyn Rosengarten and Donald and Judith Brown met in August 1998 to discuss ways of encouraging the government, the universities, the scientists in fact anyone, to dedicate time and money on research into multiple myeloma.

The meeting took place at the Cancer Council of Victoria and was facilitated by Pat Dobson, a Research and Development Officer with the Cancer Council.

At that time their own investigations had indicated that very little scientific research was being directed towards the prevention and cure of myeloma in this country. So, they embarked on a mission to correct this state of affairs leading to the birth of Myeloma Victoria.
