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.

Creating and sharing hope
with Myeloma patients, caregivers, family and friends
through education, support, and our personal experiences.
Founded by Peter and Lucy Tischler in September of 1996, the North Texas Myeloma Support Group is comprised of myeloma patients their primary care givers and grew out of a need for information and mutual support for this challenging disease.
Multiple Myeloma is cancer of the Bone Marrow. More specifically, it is an uncontrolled growth of plasma cells. Although there is no known cure, there are many approaches to help myeloma patients live better and longer. As a result, people with myeloma can sometimes live for many years. There remains much controversy about how to treat the disease. The course of treatment is very much dependent on the specifics of the patient's physical, emotional and family situations.
The Group meets the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., utilizing a support group format. Members of the group also help provide refreshments and assistance with group communications and programming. There are no dues to join; however, a $5.00 per family donation is requested of those present to help defray the cost of office supplies and printed material that is handed out.
The North Texas Myeloma Support Group meets at the new Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at 3410 Worth Street, Dallas, TX 75246
