As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.
The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

Stay Safe, Stay Resilient
Welcome to the Canton Multiple Myeloma Support Group. Our meetings are held at the Gabrail Cancer Center, 4875 Higbee Ave. NW, Canton, OH 44718. Meetings will be held the 4th Monday of each month.
At our meetings, patients, caregivers and friends share their knowledge and experiences on treatments, coping with side effects, medical insurance, participation in clinical trials, new scientific and clinical research and provide mutual support and encouragement.
We also invite experts to join us and share their knowledge. Call, email or mail to get on our email/phone list so you can receive the meeting announcements. You can also view the details of our next support group meeting, get driving directions, etc. here on our web site.
