The Southern Vermont Myeloma Support Network includes members from eastern New York state and the northern Berkshires in Massachusetts. We utilize the Difficult Conversations Workbook: Finding a Path through Illness, an interactive toolkit produced by the Center for Communication in Medicine Speak Sooner initiative. Interested patients with blood diseases, caregivers, family members, and friends are encouraged to join us! Remember, knowledge is patient-power, so learn and share as much as possible about myeloma. Our group is affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF).
