Teesside Myeloma Support Group

Teesside Myeloma Support Group is an active Group and is led by Macmillan Specialist Nurse, Kerry Dempsey along with Liz Dobson.

The Group often combines meetings with Hartlepool and County Durham Myeloma Support Group which is also run by Kerry and Liz, meaning that members of both Groups can attend either meetings held at either North Tees or Hartlepool hospitals.

The Group regularly invites along guest speakers, to talk about myeloma related topics and it also holds fundraising events throughout the year and a Christmas social.

It is a very welcoming Group and anyone affected by myeloma is welcome to attend.
