Our October 2017 meeting will be held on Saturday October 14. This will be a Patient/Family Split meeting. After the general announcements, patients will meet in one room and family members in another.
We’ve decided to cancel our end-of-year meeting scheduled for Saturday December 9. Given the weather reports about the imminent storm, we decided to use an abundance of caution so that no one puts themselves at risk to travel. If you know anyone who was planning on attending tomorrow, feel free to reach out to them to insure they know about the cancellation.
We know you will share our disappointment at not being able to come together to share some holiday spirit. We will find a way to begin 2018 in a more festive way than we normally do.
Our January meeting will feature two speakers from the International Myeloma Foundation.
Due to some unforeseen problems, Donna Capozzi was unable to attend our March meeting. She has rescheduled for our upcoming April meeting.
