About Us

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with myeloma. A type of cancer arising from plasma cells normally found in the bone marrow.

You and other supporters are helping to transform myeloma patients’ lives, and have been doing so for the last 25 years. In that time, you and others have already helped to:


  • Drive much needed myeloma focused research in the UK – with nearly £19 million invested in total
  • Give patients access to nine new myeloma drugs – including the first myeloma-specific drug, which is now available to all myeloma patients at diagnosis
  • Provide 25 years of crucial patient and family support services – giving people across the UK access to evidence-based information tailored for people affected by myeloma
  • Get the first life-extending maintenance treatment for myeloma approved for use on the NHS

You can read more about some of the achievements we’ve already made together on our interactive timeline.

With your help – our ambition is to find a cure and make myeloma history. Until then, we’re making sure every myeloma patient can live an empowered present and a hopeful future.

None of this work would be possible without supporters like you. So thank you if you are dedicating a star to someone special today.
