Serving Madison, Southern Wisconsin and the greater multiple myeloma community

"Providing an opportunity for multiple myeloma patients and their loved ones to
come together to exchange information for mutual support, comfort, and friendship"

Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer, and is considered a cancer of the immune system. It is currently considered incurable but is treatable. Multiple myeloma accounts for less than one percent of all cancers. If you are new to understanding multiple myeloma, it may be helpful for you to start with the links in the left column.

Note that multiple myeloma is very individual, and patients should discuss any changes with their physician. The information provided in this Web site is for educational purposes only.
