Update on the COVID-19 pandemic

Information regarding COVID-19 is in constant change, as is the situation regarding vaccination and prioritization for immune-compromised individuals.

If you have any COVID-19-related questions, we’ve created a specific COVID section on our website that can be accessed by clicking here or by selecting the “News & Events” tab from our homepage. In this section, you’ll find the latest news and information about the pandemic in Canada from trustworthy and reliable sources.

Any specific questions that you may have regarding the COVID-19 vaccination, delays between vaccine dosing, and prioritization within your province are best answered by your healthcare team. They’re the ones who know you and your particular situation and are therefore in a position to best address your unique concerns.

Created by, and entirely focused on, Canadians impacted by myeloma, Myeloma Canada is the only national charitable organization committed to providing you with the most up-to-date and reliable information on myeloma. Some of the ways we do this is through our monthly e-newsletter, “Myeloma Matters”, as well as through our social media platforms.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at contact@myeloma.ca or toll-free at 1-888-798-5771 with any questions regarding our programs and services.

Myeloma Peer Support Program

We are happy to announce the launch of our new Myeloma Peer Support Program, created in collaboration with Wellspring, a Canada-wide network of community-based centres that offer programs and services, at no charge and without referral, to anyone, with any type of cancer, at any stage in their journey. Wellspring has extensive experience in creating, managing and executing Peer Support Programs.

All Myeloma Peer Support Volunteers are individuals from within our Myeloma Canada community who have first-hand experience either living with myeloma, or as caregivers to someone with the disease. Volunteers have been carefully selected, and trained to provide you with the peer support you’re looking for. There is no fee for this program.

Myeloma Peer Support Volunteers know what you’re going through.

These Volunteers are your true peers. Their shared experience may help you better understand, manage or cope with your situation, provide you with a different perspective, or valuable ideas and insights. Speaking directly and privately with a Myeloma Peer Support Volunteer may offer you a different level of comfort, knowing that they too, ‘have been there’.
