The Ottawa-Gatineau Multiple Myeloma Community Network

The Ottawa-Gatineau Multiple Myeloma Community Network is a patient-managed and patient-centered group that provides information to newly diagnosed patients as well as a circle of mutual support from those who are further along in their journey with Myeloma. From patients, caregivers, family and friends we learn how to live with this disease.

The purpose of the Network is to break isolation, provide mutual support and share information.


The mission of the Network is to provide hope and to empower myeloma patients, family, caregivers and friends through education, advocacy, patient care and support and sharing experiences.
