As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.
The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

Welcome to the Central Nebraska Myeloma Support Group, founded in 1999. Our group was founded through the efforts of individuals like you, that seek to find an answer to the second most common blood cancer. Please join our community and tell us stories of your journey and accomplishments.
Myeloma Voice: Arlene Preisendorf
Diagnosed with myeloma in February 2009 at the age of 47, Arlene Preisendorf recalls contacting Support Group Leader Dr. Jim Omel just a few days later. She shares how Jim connected with her and her husband by talking about his own experience with the disease, and also providing them with breadth of IMF pamphlets on myeloma.
(A new attendance record of 47 attendees at January, 2017 meeting! Come join us to learn about myeloma.)
Our group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
