Welcome to the Chesapeake Multiple Myeloma Network (CMMN). If you are living with Multiple Myeloma, you need not be alone. The Chesapeake Multiple Myeloma Network (CMMN) is an informal Eastern Shore support and education group of individuals affected by multiple myeloma. Its mission is “to provide ongoing resources of information, support, shared experiences, and hope for persons with multiple myeloma, their families, and friends.” CMMN partners with the University of Maryland’s Shore Regional Health Cancer Center’s Outpatient Oncology Support Program and is an affiliate of the International Myeloma Foundation.
CMMN meets quarterly on the first Saturday of the months of March, May, September, and November from 4:00 until 5:30, unless otherwise noted.
