Someone I know has myeloma

Someone I know has myeloma

A diagnosis of myeloma can bring significant change, uncertainty and concern for patients, their families and friends. Despite these challenges, patients do seem to cope; they get on with their lives, despite the ups and downs. Very often patients are supported by carers or family members who play a significant role in helping them to manage and maintain a good quality of life.

Caring for a loved one can bring great personal satisfaction, but there can also be times when it’s tiring, frustrating and isolating. Becoming more knowledgeable about myeloma, its treatment options and potential complications can help carers and family members to support patients to make informed decisions about their treatment, care and life choices.

If you know someone who has been diagnosed with myeloma, the following resources have been developed with you in mind. We encourage you to call, email, if you have any questions or would appreciate the opportunity to talk to someone who knows about myeloma.

Other resources include:

  • Irish cancer society
  • Daffodil Centre
  • Myeloma support groups
