About US

Welcome to the Ocean County Multiple Myeloma Family Support Group Website.

The ongoing support group offers patients and their supporters a place to go for shelter and comfort in dealing with myeloma. Many myeloma patients benefit by meeting with peers, sharing information, and learning from one another’s experiences.

The Ocean County ​Multiple Myeloma Family Support Group is part of a network of worldwide myeloma specific support groups affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation (www.myeloma.org).  Myeloma can very often be treated successfully, and many patients live long and productive lives after being diagnosed. We encourage you to learn as much as possible and to seek the best care possible.

At  our meetings, patients, caregivers and friends share their knowledge and experiences on treatments, coping with side effects, medical insurance, participation in clinical trials, new scientific and clinical research and provide mutual support and encouragement.

This is an excellent way to meet and interact with fellow myeloma patients, their family members and friends. Our meetings consist of patients sharing their experiences as well as presentations from relevant guest speakers.

Our group meets  on the Second Tuesday of every month, from 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM at the Beach Plum Room at Southern Ocean Medical Center 1140 Route 72 West Manahawkin, NJ 08050
