Myeloma arises in the plasma cells, which are a type of white blood cell made in the bone marrow. Unlike many types of cancer, myeloma does not exist as a single lump or tumour, instead it affects multiple places in the body, such as in the bones of the spine, rib cage, or hips.
There are 17,500 people living with this blood cancer in the UK. We are the only organisation in the UK which deals exclusively with myeloma and our ultimate goal is to find a cure.
