Myeloma Stars Christmas Appeal 2019

Send some love and dedicate a star this Christmas to support our work.

Fundraising news // 21st November 2019

This festive season we’ve launched a brand new Christmas Appeal to help raise funds to support the work of Myeloma UK and we would love you to get involved.

The Myeloma Stars Christmas Appeal is a website where you can give a donation and dedicate a star in our glittering night sky to someone who shines brightly for you.

You can dedicate your star to anyone you like: a loved one, health care professional, colleague or friend. Our starry site allows you to upload a photograph and message which you can share with family and friends to spread the love and help raise awareness.

Speaking about the campaign, Myeloma UK supporter Paul Mellor said:

“ I have nominated my haematology nurse specialist Sue Robb. I got to know Sue when I was diagnosed with myeloma in 2017, her positivity, confidence and strength to help me understand myeloma and understand my journey was such a powerful help to me. We’re now good friends and I even persuaded to her to do the Myeloma UK London to Paris bike ride. Talking to other myeloma patients they share the same view that I have of her and she thoroughly deserves to be a myeloma star for 2019.”

The appeal has also been supported by Myeloma UK supporter Gill Scott, who posted the below star message in dedication to her father.

By supporting the Myeloma Stars Christmas Appeal you will raise vital funds for Myeloma UK – driving research and patient support and making a real difference to families affected by myeloma.

Dedicate your star now and help make myeloma history.
