Detroit’s Myeloma Community

We are here to help

  • Patients need education about the new drug therapies available and the quickly changing myeloma landscape.
  • We are working to build a local myeloma community, which can support patients and caregivers.
  • We see that there is disparity of care and access to treatments among patients, particularly in the Detroit area. We want to help bridge that gap.
  • Furthermore, CMMC is committed to shedding more light on multiple myeloma, so that the public in general is better informed.

Bringing the myeloma community together is key to meeting these needs. That’s why Wine & Dine in the D was created. The evening kicks off with 90-minute educational roundtable discussion by some of the most prominent myeloma doctors in the country. Following this important educational panel, we host a “Wine & Dine” fundraiser, featuring delicious food and beverages from some of Detroit’s finest restaurants. All food and beverages are donated. It is an evening to educate about myeloma, raise funds for research and inspire.

Two of the top Myeloma doctors in Michigan have signed on to raise funds form multiple myeloma research by climbing to the Mt. Everest Base Camp & Kalapathhar in March 2018.
