West Pennine Myeloma Support Group

The West Pennine Myeloma Support Group meets in Bury but welcomes members from Lancashire and Greater Manchester.

The group provides emotional and educational support for people with myeloma together with their carers, family and friends.

Anyone is welcome to attend any of the meetings at the Town Hall and if you have difficulties in getting to the meetings you can contact the Support Group to see if lifts can be organised.

At most meetings there is a guest speaker either on aspects of coping with myeloma or general interest but there is always time to chat over tea/coffee, share experiences and give each other practical and emotional support.
