The Northeast Tennessee Multiple Myeloma Support Group

Myeloma Action Month (MAM) Is Here!

This year the IMF has launched a powerful social campaign to grow awareness of multiple myeloma, and activate those directly, and or indirectly affected by the disease. The campaign is titled “Myeloma Warrior,” or #MyelomaWarrior. We’ve relaunched the Myeloma Action Month website with a whole new look to reflect this message.

The campaign focuses on Myeloma Warriors – individuals like YOU - patients, caregivers, family members, healthcare professionals, and more.

Check out the MAM page for all the exciting ways you can
Take Action and amplify awareness of myeloma
in your community and worldwide!

Welcome to our North East Tennessee Multiple Myeloma Support Group. All those who are affected directly by Multiple Myeloma or who have a friend or family member who is, are invited to join us. This is a rare cancer and it can be very helpful to join with others to: gain support, remove isolation, share stories, discuss care, and find treatments. We can be assured that when armed with support, proper knowledge, good medical assistance, and the advantages of new findings, you have an excellent chance of a good quality of life for many years.

Our Mission Statement:

To build a social and emotional support network for patients with Multiple Myeloma, as well as their friends and family, and to share medical information.
