15 years of Making Myeloma Matter

In 2020, we celebrated our 15th anniversary, launched our 1st corporate video, “15 Years of Making Myeloma Matter,” as well as our Case for Support brochure. The brochure highlights what Myeloma Canada has been able to achieve since our founding, thanks to the support and generosity of our community and donors.

When we started planning for our 15th anniversary year, we felt strongly about celebrating this exciting milestone and sharing it with you, our myeloma community—you’re the reason why we get stronger every year. We wanted to highlight how far Myeloma Canada has come since our founding, how from not having a national organization dedicated specifically to myeloma, two determined men living with myeloma—Aldo Del Col and John Lemieux—came together to create this wonderful organization that I am so proud to be a part of.

I’d also like to extend my appreciation and thanks to all who shared their thoughts, reflections, memories of, and wishes for, Myeloma Canada in the video.
