HealthTree Connect: A Larger Network for the Myeloma Community
Posted: Feb 01, 2023
HealthTree Connect: A Larger Network for the Myeloma Community image

Today I'm celebrating a better way to connect with the myeloma community. 

Although I love our monthly or bimonthly meetings with such unique groups of people, I'm always left with a desire to hear more about the story you started to share or the reason behind the question you asked in our meeting. Now, I have a way to do that! 

By joining our HealthTree Connect groups that relate to the Community chapters, you have a built-in network to connect with those in the same geographic area or the same stage of diagnosis. I want to see your pictures, hear your good and bad news, host discussions on different side-effect solutions you are trying, and do my best to answer your questions or find resources to assist you. 

Join HealthTree Connect

Our HealthTree Connect groups will allow personal relationships within the myeloma community to grow, so they don't feel alone. 

Here are some of the stage-of-diagnosis groups that you can join today: 

These specific HealthTree Connect groups are new, so don't be afraid to start the discussion by posting an introduction so we can get to know you. You can even include a selfie if you'd like! 

There are other geographic groups you can join to find those in your local area: 

New HealthTree Connect groups are being created, so if you don't see your regional chapter there, don't fret! 

Here are some of the upcoming groups you can anticipate: 

  • Midwest Myeloma 
  • Pacific Northwest Myeloma 
  • Europe Myeloma 
  • Younger Myeloma Community 
  • Patients without a Primary Caregiver

and more! 

We couldn't have started building these helpful Community Chapters without you. We hope that as you take the time to connect with us through our new HealthTree Connect platform, we can continue building strong, beneficial relationships while navigating such a complex disease. 

See you on HealthTree Connect!
