Bath Myeloma Support Group

Bath Myeloma Support Group is a very well attended group with around 40-50 patients and family members in regular attendance.

The Group is run by a small committee of patients and family members, including Denis Griffin, Phil Keeble and Sylvia Henderson, and they, alongside other committee members, work to provide a programme of meetings, social events and fundraising activities each year. The Group is also very well supported by the healthcare team at the Royal United Hospital.

Meetings offer the opportunity to meet others and share experiences about living with myeloma and guest speakers are often invited to give talks on a variety of topics relating to myeloma.

Anyone affected by myeloma is welcome to join this group.
