Myeloma Australia’s Information and Support Groups are informal gatherings for people living with myeloma, their family and friends. These meetings provide a safe space to meet other members of the myeloma community to share their experiences of living with myeloma, and to learn from various guest speakers from a health management and practical perspective.

If you would like to enquire about your nearest support group or starting a new support group please contact nurses@myeloma.org.au or call the Telephone Support Line 1800 693 566.
