Ipswich and East Suffolk Myeloma Support Group

Ipswich and East Suffolk Myeloma Support Group is for patients and family members from Ipswich and the surrounding area in East Suffolk.

It meets four times a year on Thursdays at lunchtime in a Church Hall in Ipswich. They have an excellent sandwich lunch from a local bakery. Usually about 25-30 people attend, including patients and their families.

The Group usually invites a speaker to talk about an aspect of myeloma at most meetings, sometimes covering medical issues, eg, infection, radiotherapy and sometimes on more practical aspects of living with myeloma such as ‘chair pilates’, holidays and travel etc.

There is plenty of opportunity to chat to others, make new friends and find out about different peoples’ experiences of treatments.
