The Hackensack Multiple Myeloma Support Group

As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.

The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

Welcome to the Hackensack Multiple Myeloma Support Group, founded in January, 2007.  If you are living with Multiple Myeloma, you need not be alone. You'll find others whose experience can be a source of strength, hope, and inspiration. If you are a caregiver or caring friend, your needs will be addressed with programs sensitive to your particular needs. We invite you to join us and to benefit from a wealth of knowledge, comfort, friendship, and good times.

Our group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 10:30 AM - Noon.

Meeting Location:
