Become a volunteer

Volunteers are the foundation of Myeloma Canada.

We are always looking for individuals who wish to volunteer their time and energy to make myeloma matter. There are countless meaningful ways you can help, with as little or as much time as you’d like.

The opportunities to volunteer are endless. Whether it’s by becoming active in a support group, participating or creating a fundraising event, joining an advocacy initiative (like advocating for better access to new therapies), helping create awareness for myeloma by participating in our annual Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month campaign every March, offering up your expertise, or donating a prize or service, we are humbled by whatever you can offer.

Use your creativity and channel your energy into holding your own fundraiser. It’s a fun and rewarding way to connect with others, create awareness, and raise funds for myeloma.
