Speaker: Thomas Goode & Page Bertolotti, RN

July 15, 2017 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Our next meeting of the MMSS is this Saturday, July 15th.  We have two special guests - Page Bertolotti and Thomas Goode - who are from the Celgene Ambassador Program.  You will learn more about Multiple Myeloma from the patient and medical perspective. 

As usual, we will meet from 10AM to Noon at the Gift of Life Transplant House, North side.  Some refreshments will be provided.  I will arrive a little after 9AM to start set up.  I will need to leave at the end of the meeting so I am hopeful there are a few people who will be able to assist with clean up after.

Meeting schedule -

TIME & LOCATION - We are meeting at the Gift of Life Transplant House, 705-2nd street location (north side/old house) from 10:00 AM to Noon.  Multiple myeloma survivors, caregivers, family and friends are welcome. Please join the group.  Light refreshments provided by Takeda Oncology, meeting space provided by the Gift of Life Transplant House, educational materials provided by the IMF.

HELPING HANDS - I typically arrive around 9:00/9:15 to arrange chairs, set up food and lay out materials.  For future meetings, if anyone is able to plan in advance to assist with set up, please let me know.  If you are unable to arrive early, assistance with clean up afterwards is just as helpful.

This sharing group holds free meetings for multiple myeloma patients and their families. We offer the opportunity for informal discussions and questions, and occasionally have invited speakers to provide information about various topics related to the cancer experience.
