The Greater West Bend Area Multiple Myeloma Support Group was established to help myeloma patients live better, stronger lives, through education, support, encouragement and socialization with others living with the disease.
We serve all of the northern Milwaukee metro area, including West Bend, Hartford, Slinger, Jackson, Cedarburg, Grafton, Germantown, Menomonee Falls, Fond du Lac and surrounding areas. All are welcome regardless of where you live!
Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month at St. Joseph’s Hospital ** in West Bend, and are open to all myeloma patients, their families and friends.
** Occasionally our meetings may be held at an off-site location, or could be postponed for weather or other reasons, so if this is your first time attending a meeting, please call for location confirmation. We do announce meeting site here on our website as well as in our monthly newsletter.
Meetings are from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Several times per year we will host guest speakers presenting on a variety of topics, and we also offer an array of myeloma literature and other materials at no cost. From time to time we will also have breakout sessions for caregivers.
Future meeting topics include: Talking with Your Doctor; Nutrition and Exercise for Cancer Patients; Treatment Side Effects; Understanding Serum Free Light Chain tests; Stem Cell Transplants; Bone Disease; and many others. We will also have an annual visit from the International Myeloma Foundation’s area representative, who will share the latest in myeloma news.
The GWBA MM Support Group is proud to be affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation and sponsored by St. Joseph’s Hospital in West Bend. We thank them wholeheartedly for their devotion to helping cancer patients live better, stronger lives.
