Multiple myeloma is a cancer that prohibits the creation of antibodies in plasma cells that assist in fighting infections. This can cause bone pain, excessive thirst and frequent infection, among other symptoms. The American Cancer society estimates that over 32,000 people will be diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2019.
The San Fernando Valley chapter of the Multiple Myeloma Support Group holds meetings the third Wednesday of each month for those diagnosed with the disease and their caregivers to educate and support.
