In Canada, there is a non-profit organization created by and for patients with multiple myeloma: Myeloma Canada. The mission of this organization includes several components:
- Provide educational resources and support to patients, families and caregivers
- Increase awareness of the disease and its effects on the lives of patients and families
- Promote clinical research and access to new drug trials in Canada
- Facilitate access to new therapies, treatment options and health care resources
Myeloma Canada is one of the main instigators of the Université de Montréal Myeloma Canada Chair on multiple myeloma at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont. The organization is represented on the Chair’s management committee by its chairman or his representative.
