North Dakota Multiple Myeloma Support Group

Welcome to the North Dakota Multiple Myeloma Support Group. Our support group helps patients diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and their caregivers deal with this incurable, but treatable cancer. The format for our support group includes time for discussion, guest lecturers, sharing of educational information, and topics that are chosen by group members.

Our support group is NOT group therapy, but is led by a Multiple Myeloma survivor and focuses on learning how to manage current concerns and situations. There is no cost to the participants and our group meetings are open to all people affected by Multiple Myeloma, including spouses, children, and relatives.

Studies have found that support groups can enhance self-esteem, reduce depression, decrease anxiety and improve relationships with family members and friends.  The North Dakota Multiple Myeloma Support Group can help you cope better with your diagnosis and increase your knowledge of Multiple Myeloma and its treatment.

We meet on the third Tuesday of every month.  The meetings run from 6:30pm-8:30pm and include refreshments, an educational presentation, and a time for socializing.  Patients, caregivers, and family members are invited.

Meeting Location:

Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library
515 N. 5th St
Bismarck ND, 58501
