Support Groups & Classes for Multiple Myeloma

JamesCare for Life provides a comprehensive range of resources and services to support cancer patients, their families and caregivers.

At The James, our caring, trained professionals help patients recover and adjust to new ways of living. Dealing with a cancer diagnosis and the special circumstances surrounding cancer can be scary for patients, and living with cancer involves more than the physical aspects of dealing with the disease. At The James, we help patients journey out of fear and into hope.

Numerous support groups, services and classes are offered by the JamesCare for Life Program. Here are some resources for patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma and their family and friends:
