Meetings

The San Gabriel Valley Multiple Myeloma Support Group, founded in April, 2013, meets on the 1st Monday (except holidays) of each month  from 6:00 – 7:50 pm.  There is normally no meeting in September.  We normally have free food and socializing beginning at 6:00 pm, and the meeting itself starts promptly at 6:30 pm.

We are grateful to CSC Pasadena for hosting our meetings.

January 7:   We will have our regular round-table discussion, where members share their experiences.  No formal speaker.

February 4:  Patient-Caregiver breakout.  We'll spend a substantial part of our time with patients and caregivers/family/friends meeting is separate rooms.   We typically do this a couple of times per year, and most people have found it useful.

Later meetings in 2019:  Plans are still being developed.  Things we're working on include

  • Discussion led by Laura Wending of CSC-Pasadena, a professional councilor.
  • Talk by Dr. Robert Vescio of Ceders-Sinai.
  • Talk by a patient education nurse from one of the pharmaceutical companies.

Most meetings will still consist of our traditional round-table discussion among members.
