Update on the COVID-19 pandemic

Information regarding COVID-19 is in constant change, as is the situation regarding vaccination and prioritization for immune-compromised individuals.

If you have any COVID-19-related questions, we’ve created a specific COVID section on our website that can be accessed by clicking here or by selecting the “News & Events” tab from our homepage. In this section, you’ll find the latest news and information about the pandemic in Canada from trustworthy and reliable sources.

Any specific questions that you may have regarding the COVID-19 vaccination, delays between vaccine dosing, and prioritization within your province are best answered by your healthcare team. They’re the ones who know you and your particular situation and are therefore in a position to best address your unique concerns.

Created by, and entirely focused on, Canadians impacted by myeloma, Myeloma Canada is the only national charitable organization committed to providing you with the most up-to-date and reliable information on myeloma. Some of the ways we do this is through our monthly e-newsletter, “Myeloma Matters”, as well as through our social media platforms.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at contact@myeloma.ca or toll-free at 1-888-798-5771 with any questions regarding our programs and services.

We’re asking you to use your power to grow the conversation and increase support for this 2nd most common form of blood cancer that sadly still remains relatively unknown and claims too many lives. Your support will ensure that the incredible advancements we’ve seen in myeloma continue. 

YOU have the POWER. Here’s how:

1. On social media:

Create social media posts that talk about myeloma, how you’re growing the conversation, and ask others to join in.

2. In other ways:

If social media isn’t your thing, there are a lot of other ways you can use your power:

  • Share your story with acquaintances or those in your distant circle who may not already know it and encourage them to do the same in theirs.
  • Reach out to your local newspaper or radio show and offer up an interview on myeloma and its impact on your life.
  • Discuss the effects of myeloma on your life with friends and loved ones who don’t know much about the subject.
  • Explain what myeloma is to those who may not be aware.
  • Give a (online/zoom) talk at your community centre, your book club, yoga, running, or knitting group (or any group you belong to!).
  • Learn about new available treatments or clinical trials and discuss your options with your support system and healthcare team.
  • Review your treatment goals with your friends and loved ones.
  • Get involved in a support group if you aren’t, or help create one in your area if there isn’t one already.
  • Create a fundraiser to raise awareness and money for myeloma.
  • Purchase and wear your Myeloma Canada logo socks and washable masks to get the conversation going.
  • Share articles with your friends and family and ask them to do the same.

3. Get involved:

Join our community. Volunteer. Support one another. Fundraise. Advocate. Donate.

For the 9 new Canadians diagnosed with myeloma every day, and the entire Canadian myeloma community, ‘like’, promote and share this campaign on your social media news feeds, outlets, and blogs… anywhere and everywhere you can. The more noise we make, the more we continue to make myeloma matter.

YOU have the POWER to help thousands.
