Having multiple myeloma is not easy and requires skills and direction. We're a team of myeloma patient and caregiver volunteers here to help you navigate your myeloma with a compass not a map. We can help guide you to find and use the best myeloma resources so that you can better navigate your myeloma care.
Coaches can provide guidance in finding a myeloma specialist, learning about financial aid or using online and digital resources that can help you live longer and better with multiple myeloma.
“Because this disease is treatable, it’s important to have someone to talk to that can help you through the emotional and physical aspects. Coaches are essential in fighting myeloma. When you have a Coach, it helps build a positive attitude that you can get through this disease.”
—Doug Stewart, Ogden, UT
