Myeloma caregivers face a different battle than their loved ones do. This role often comes with unique challenges, full schedules and complex emotions. However, there is power in meeting and connecting, and we believe that by meeting together we can ease each other's burdens and improve the myeloma experience for others like us.
If you are a myeloma caregiver and are interested in meeting with others, please join our Myeloma Caregiver Community. We will meet virtually as a Community Chapter each month, at times with experts and other sessions amongst ourselves as we discuss how best to support one another and provide solutions for each other's needs.
You can sign up for the chapter or register for our upcoming event below. We look forward to meeting with you!
Myeloma Caregiver Community Chapter:
August Myeloma Caregiver Community Chapter Event:
Join us on Tuesday, August 30th to discuss "Processing the Grief of Your Loved One's Diagnosis (And the Life You Thought You'd Have)". We will discuss together the five stages of grief and how normal it is to grieve the life that you thought you'd have before your loved one's diagnosis. This discussion's intent is to connect, support and validate other myeloma caregivers who are going through similar experiences. The event will occur virtually at 7:00 pm Eastern (4:00 pm Pacific, 5:00 pm Mountain, 6:00 pm Central)
A special thanks to our sponsors who make these Chapters possible:
