Welcome to the Chesapeake Multiple Myeloma Network Group. If you are living with Multiple Myeloma, you need not be alone. You'll find others whose experience can be a source of strength, hope, and inspiration. If you are a caregiver or caring friend, your needs will be addressed with programs sensitive to your particular needs. We invite you to join us and to benefit from a wealth of knowledge, comfort, friendship, and good times.
For 2017, we are shifting the timing of our four annual meetings to the months of March, May, September, and November. With this change, we hope to avoid months in which the weather can be challenging and months during which many of our members travel. Meetings will continue to be held on the first Saturday of the month from 4:00 to 5:30 PM unless otherwise announced.
What’s New in the Treatment of Multiple Myeloma?
Dr. Rodrigo B. Erlich of Bay Hematology/Oncology in Easton to Speak at Eastern Shore Multiple Myeloma Support Group Meeting
Dr. Rodrigo B. Erlich of Bay Hematology/Oncology of Easton will speak at the quarterly meeting of the Chesapeake Multiple Myeloma Network (CMMN) on Saturday, March 4th at 4:00 PM in the Large Conference Room of the Eastern Shore Conservation Center (114 S. Washington St., Easton). The talk, What’s New in the Treatment of Multiple Myeloma?, is free and open to the public. Dr. Erlich, a highly regarded cancer researcher and clinician, will discuss rapidly developing and promising clinical strategies in the treatment of multiple myeloma—a cancer of the bone marrow. The talk should be helpful to myeloma patients and their families in discussions with their physician about treatment options. CMMN’s meetings last about an hour and a half.
