All cancers that originate in the blood or bone marrow—leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and their various types and subtypes—are included in this support group.
It is open to adult patients who have or have had acute and chronic leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, multiple myeloma, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), and myeloproliferative disorders.
While these diseases affect the blood cells in different ways, there are similarities in how they cause one to feel and how they are treated.
The group provides participants with the opportunity to share and compare their experiences. As blood cancers affect a wide range of ages, the group is open to adult survivors of any age and their family members and supporters.
Typically 6 to 12 participate in any given meeting, and there tends to be a family-type camaraderie. Lunch and parking validation are provided.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, MA Chapter, helps BMC promote this group, as it is the only blood cancer support group in the immediate Boston area. Those treated at any institution are welcome to attend.
