South Wales Myeloma Support Group

South Wales Myeloma Support Group has been set up for myeloma patients, carers and families in Cardiff and surrounding areas.

It is a friendly and supportive group and meetings are a chance to get together with others who are affected by myeloma, have a chat over tea/coffee and learn more about different aspects of living well with myeloma. The Group also does some fundraising for Myeloma UK.

Expert guest speakers are often invited to present to the group on various topics and there are social meals every other month and an annual outing.
