The West Lancs and Merseyside Myeloma Support Group celebrated its 100th monthly meeting by holding an afternoon tea social meeting at O’Briens cafe in Ormskirk on Tuesday 7th May 2024.

The event was well attended by 28 members who are all patients and carers affected by the blood cancer Myeloma. Social events like this make a big difference in helping to cope with the routine of hospital appointments and side effects from treatment.

The support group first started in January 2016 and has met every month since then, even during the COVID pandemic when meetings were held remotely on Zoom.
Founding members Dave Lovelady from Ormskirk, Pauline Conder from Skelmersdale and David Simister from Southport marked the occasion by cutting a celebratory cake.

At LMRUK, we’re proud to partner with the West Lancs and Merseyside Myeloma Support Group and its members to help raise awareness of Myeloma and its symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments.
Congratulations on reaching this impressive milestone and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future.
