We are pleased to announce the addition of a new support group for people living with myeloma. The NWA Myeloma Support Group will provide education, support and the opportunity to share personal experiences with others going through a similar situation. This new monthly support group is for myeloma patients, survivors, caregivers and loved ones. 

Julie Kientz, LSW, Hope Cancer Resources Social Worker and Blood Cancers Group Facilitator will lead the group alongside Yelak Biru, a 22-year myeloma survivor.

“To have a specific myeloma support group is significant because patients and caregivers will be able to make connections with others who have been where they are,” Julie said. “The education portion is designed to improve understanding of myeloma. This group is different than others because the co-facilitator is a 22-year myeloma survivor who is passionate about providing support to others.”

Our first NWA Myeloma Support Group meeting is next Tuesday, August 7 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Hope Cancer Resources. Please contact Julie at 479-361-5847 for more information or to RSVP.

For more information about the many support groups we offer, please visit hopecancerresources.org/supportgroups.aspx.

The NWA Myeloma Support Group is recognized by the International Myeloma Foundation.
