Mission Myeloma, Inc. is dedicated to showing support to myeloma patients and their families and to fund research for a cure. Mission Myeloma was established in response to the lack of resources for this type of blood cancer in Wisconsin. Mission Myeloma provides support in three ways: 1.) Financial Grants. Financial assistance is intended to help offset the cost of medical and household expenses. Myeloma patients complete and submit the grant application found online at www.missionmyeloma.org for consideration. The application process includes verification by the patient’s medical team. 2.) Care Packages. Care packages are provided to myeloma patients through partnerships with local healthcare medical teams treating myeloma patients. This gift is intended to provide patients with hope and assurance they are not alone. Mission Myeloma care packages are currently being distributed by ThedaCare Cancer Center, Green Bay Oncology, and Marshfield Clinic. 3.) Network of Resources. Through collaboration with various local healthcare professionals, Mission Myeloma is establishing a network of resources for myeloma patients, their loved ones, as well as their caregivers. Resources include relevant programs, educational materials, and support groups to offset various obstacles that accompany a myeloma diagnosis, including emotional and financial strain, as well as access to accurate and easy-to-understand education about myeloma.
