What is Myeloma?

Myeloma is a terminal blood cancer. Myeloma Foundation of Australia (MA) is the leading dedicated advocacy organisation for Myeloma patients and carers in Australia.  Established in 1998, MA represents those affected by Myeloma by;

  • Providing up to date information and support to patients and carers through all stages of the patient journey;
  • Lobbying government in order to assist patients to receive the latest available pharmaceutical treatments; and
  • Raising awareness and understanding of the condition among health professionals and the wider community.

It is MA’s mission to help facilitate Myeloma research in Australia, inform and support those living with the disease and educate those involved in its care and treatment. MA has provided much support to Geoff Nyssen and his family since 2014. Geoff and the MY MOUNT ELIZA committee are driven to support MA continue their great work in the community.
