Leeds Myeloma Support Group

Leeds Myeloma Support Group is a small informal group of patients and family members who meet once a month at the Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre to find out more about living with myeloma and share experiences.

The Group is led by Rita, a myeloma patient, along with her husband Simon. Anyone is welcome, but please contact Rita to let her know if you’re planning to attend for the first time and to confirm meeting dates.
