Los Angeles Multiple Myeloma Support Group

As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.

The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

The L.A. Support Group offers the latest information, unbiased support, and fact-based hope for myeloma patients and their caregivers, family and friends.  

Participants share and compare their experiences with others who may be looking at symptoms, tests, or treatments for the first time. We also welcome experts who provide special insights into different aspects of the disease and its treatment.  Just as important, we always reserve time for your questions.

Our group meets every month, on the 3rd Saturday from 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM.

While the COVID-19 restrictions remain in place, we are meeting online.  Call or email one of the co-leaders to receive an invitation and link.
