The Kansas City Multiple Myeloma Family Support Group

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.

Life goes on – #WeAreResilient2020

The The Kansas City Multiple Myeloma Family Support Group members enjoyed our first VIRTUAL support group meeting in May. These virtual meetings can inspire us to connect and be social and supportive, while we physically distance, and strive to be kind and do the best for everyone.

We had the opportunity to see each other and catch up on life as well as myeloma patient safety and the coronavirus. I think what we enjoyed most was just sharing and laughing together.

To join our virtual meetings, please contact Cindy Ralston at (913) 268-7422, John Killip at (816) 373-4135, Wendy Thomas, RN, MSN, OCN of KU or Email:
