The purpose of the SoCal Myeloma Community Chapter (SMCC) is to connect, educate, and support myeloma patients and caregivers throughout Southern California and surrounding regions.
The April meeting will focus on building and growing your myeloma community, Step #1 in the #CureinFive initiative. Working together we can help each other achieve better long-term health and speed the discovery of a cure. This interactive meeting will focus on:
Todd Kennedy is a Myeloma Coach and grateful patient. His background includes over 30 years working in the pharmaceutical industry until he and his wife Diane retired from their respective first careers to devote their time and talents as patient advocates, Myeloma Crowd coaches, and ambassadors for City of Hope’s expansion to Orange County. Todd is living life to the fullest with his wife and sons in Orange County, CA.
Diane has been an active and engaged care partner with Todd, her husband, since he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2017. In January 2020 they retired to devote their time and talents as patient advocates, HealthTree coaches, and grateful patient speakers/ambassadors for City of Hope. They are committed to helping improve and advance cancer care for all patients and feel a collaborative, virtual support group is an excellent way to help educate and empower patients and their families. Diane and Todd have lived in Orange County for over 25 years where they raised their two sons.
Rozalynn Hite is the HealthTree Coach Director and wife of myeloma patient Richard Hite. Rozalynn is an occupational therapist and mother of three beautiful children. She is passionate about providing support, education, and resources to help others live full and active lives.
