Mission: Our mission is to promote collaboration, awareness, education and advocacy for improved treatment and quality of life, for multiple myeloma patients, their families and ALL cancer caregivers with special consideration to the underserved.

Results: True stories - Mission Accomplished Dear Barbara, my husband and I attended one of your conferences a few years ago shortly after my sister in Los Angeles had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma. It was the best thing we could have done. It was very informative and so well organized. We sat with a group of women during lunch whom shared their experiences with multiple myeloma and from them we learned who their doctors were. We passed this information on to my sister; she then made an appointment with one of those doctors (at Mayo) for a consultation. As a result she was more able to make a decision about her treatment. Thanks to you also, she continues to be doing well, feeling well. Just want to let you know we are happy that we attended your conference and wanted to share this with you. Sincerely, Doris March 2016 A new patient, who heard me (Barbara Kavanagh) speak on Fred Taylor's Radio program, never attended a myeloma meeting. He was so excited at the conference to meet other patients and the wonderful faculty. He shared that he had felt very isolated since most people he knew had never heard of myeloma and now felt less anxious and more hopeful. - Larry 2016 Living with Myeloma Conference

I have been associated with Arizona Myeloma Network (AzMN) for the past 3 years. It truly is a grassroots charity that has gone above and beyond in the advocacy and resources it provides to cancer patients and families. AzMN has an annual Myeloma conference that brings together cancer patients, caregivers, scientists, researchers, physicians, social workers, and other healthcare professionals. Patients get to interact directly with world class Myeloma researchers and have access to educational and support resources. Additionally, AzMN has added caregiver seminars that teach caregivers how to take care of themselves while caring for loved ones. AzMN also provides cancer support resources to under served populations like the Navajo with it's annual Navajo Cancer Conference for All Cancers. Barbara Kavanagh, the CEO and Founder, works tirelessly to provide programs and outreach services to cancer patients and families. This is truly a top-notch nonprofit organization!

AZ Multiple Myeloma Network is doing so much for the community. They act as connsummate professionals every time I interact with them. It is clear their hearts are in this 100% as they give so selflessly to organize each of their fundraisers, seminars, and conferences. They gather panels of top experts in their field to educate cancer caregivers and cancer patients, and they serve each patient and family member with individualized attention and care. I work for a well known and highly regarded not for profit healthcare agency, so believe me, I know what is involved with running a not for profit. Working for a not for profit takes great heart, great care, and great expertise to care for patients and their loved ones with compassion and excellence. AZMMN has all those qualities. It is evident to me AZMMN exists solely for the benefit of the community and the people it serves.
