    BE AWARE AND MAKE MYELOMA MATTER

    Multiple Myeloma is a rare CANCER OF THE PLASMA CELLS found in the BONE MARROW. The Plasma cells make antibodies to help fight infection, but when these cells grow uncontrollably they become Myeloma cells, hence affecting production of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

    This can lead to anaemia, infections, renal failure, bone damage and pain.

    Multiple Myeloma is a ‘Stealth-like’ disease that often goes unrecognizable until more severe signs appear. Early diagnosis is crucial so that drugs can keep ahead of the Myeloma Protein.

    There is no known cause, but every day seven more Canadians are diagnosed with this incurable Cancer. Fortunately through excellent Research in developing more effective drugs as well as better Patient Treatments, life expectancy has been extended and quality of life improved.

    MYELOMA CANADA is a National organization devoted to improving the lives of Myeloma Patients and their Caregivers.
