THE HALTON-PEEL MYELOMA SUPPORT GROUP SERVING THE WEST GTA REGION
The Halton-Peel Myeloma Support Group (HPMSG) is a patient and caregiver led support group. We welcome family, friends and anyone who are interested in learning more about multiple myeloma. We are a non-profit community based organization. Membership is free of charge.
HPMSG was started in September 2013 by Norma Lindner after she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2012. The group currently has over 100 members.
Over the years, Myeloma Canada has evolved into an innovative, internationally-respected organization focusing on a grassroots, patient-driven approach to achieve goals. Working with support groups across the country, we have helped create a sense of "oneness" and common purpose, helping patients and their families learn about the disease while raising awareness in the community. Our team works to unite our small but growing community.
Our meetings are currently held in-person and virtually on the Zoom App.
Topics will vary from meeting to meeting. Some meetings are specific where we bring in speakers while others are simply to chat which we call share and care meetings.
All our meetings are on Saturdays from 10:00am-11:30am.
Our January, February and March meetings will be held on the Zoom App. From April to November our meeting will be hybrid (in-person and virtually). Zoom ID will be forwarded to those members who have provided and email address.
Refer to UPCOMING MEETINGS for dates/subjects.
