Welcome to the Fairmont MN Area Multiple Myeloma Support Group.
We are a support group for for multiple myeloma survivors, their families and friends. Our mission is to be an ongoing resource for information, support, shared experiences and hope for persons with multiple myeloma, their family and friends.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the cells in the bone marrow that affects production of red cells, white cells and stem cells. More specifically, it is an uncontrolled growth of plasma cells which attack and destroy bone. It is the 2nd largest of the blood cancers affecting an estimated 750,000 people worldwide; in industrialized countries it is growing in number and affecting increasingly younger people. Although there is no known cure, multiple myeloma is treatable and outcomes are constantly improving.
Join us as we strive to create hope and share experiences and information with myeloma patients, caregivers, family and friends through education, support and our personal experiences.
We meet on the 4th Saturday of every other month from 10:00 AM to 12:00PM beginning with February. Meeting months are Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct and Dec.
