This resource has been designed for:
The goal of the myeloma handbook is simple: to educate myeloma patients and their loved ones so they can become a more active partner in their care.
If you have been searching for information on myeloma, you know how complicated this can be. This resource
is an attempt to give you accurate, reliable and clear information on myeloma, its causes and effects, and how
it is diagnosed, staged and treated in Canada.
There is a lot of information in this handbook and the more times you refer to it, the easier it will for you to
understand it. And don’t be afraid to ask the members of your healthcare team to explain any term you don’t
understand. Over time, you will better understand your disease, your treatment options and what you can do
to optimize your quality of life.
