March is Myeloma Awareness Month

Myeloma, also referred to as multiple myeloma, is an incurable cancer of cells in the bone marrow that currently affects more than 100,000 people in the United States. Myeloma is increasing in numbers and is becoming more common in younger patients, with possible links to environmental toxins.

Although myeloma is the second most common blood cancer, it can go undiagnosed until it begins to seriously damage health. Thirty percent of patients actually have symptoms; others have unexplained fatigue, persistent or recurrent unexplained back or bone pain, persistent infections, shortness of breath or unusual bleeding, or a rash (shingles).

The Greater Richmond Multiple Myeloma Support Group (some members are pictured above) meets the third Monday of each month, except for July and August, at 7 p.m., the Forest Room, Henrico Doctor’s Hospital, 1620 Skipwith Rd. For details, visit http://richmond.support.myeloma.org.
