Perth Myeloma Support Group

Our Support Group supports patients and family/friends affected by myeloma and is open to anyone who finds this venue within travelling distance.

We usually begin our meetings by inviting a speaker to discuss an aspect of myeloma for approx 30-45 mins. Topics range from health and wellbeing relating to group members, Myeloma UK the charity and how it supports patients and families, policy matters, and consultants and other healthcare professionals from the local hospital come to discuss current treatments and trials and take questions from the Group.

These sessions are followed by refreshments (supplied and served by our volunteers Anne, Hugh and friends) and there is time for general chat/ support for one another.

Our meetings are relaxed, informative and supportive and all are welcome.
