Reading Myeloma Support Group

Reading Myeloma Support Group is open to anyone ‘Living with myeloma’, patients, family members and friends, in and around Reading.

The Group was established over five years ago and meetings attract around 30 people. The Group has members from many parts of the South-East spanning from Slough to Maidenhead, Swindon and Southampton.

The Group aims to help those ‘Living with Myeloma’, to meet others in the same situation and gain reassurance and encouragement. Many members have developed a strong bond of friendship and support each other both at and in between meetings.

The Group has talks from local consultants, Myeloma UK staff or complementary therapists, in a relaxed way with plenty of opportunity to ask questions. At some meetings the Group also shares their experiences of myeloma, always done with humour and kindness, which members find beneficial.
