WEST Lancs and Merseyside Myeloma Support Group was joined by the Mayor Cllr Marilyn Westley at Tesco in Burscough for a Myeloma awareness day.
The day was arranged to raise awareness of the support group and the blood cancer Myeloma.
The Support Group consists of Myeloma patients and carers and help to make the Myeloma journey more bearable.
The members can talk to patients who are going through similar treatment and learn from each other how to cope.
The group has raised funds and is currently arranging for a Health Professional to travel abroad to a Professionals Myeloma meeting, and return to inform GPs here how to diagnose Myeloma earlier, and therefore treat the cancer earlier.
The group meet once a month in Ormskirk and the website is www.wlm-myeloma.uk or email email@example.com
