It’s hard to hear you have a blood cancer that is treatable but is likely to come back. But people say living with myeloma is “doable” and they can continue to enjoy life.

You may find it helpful to read our online information about living well with blood cancer. This includes tips and personal stories from people who share what they have learned about:

  • Mind and emotions – taking care of your emotional health and where to go for support
  • Fatigue – managing this common symptom of blood cancer
  • Keeping active – the benefits of gentle exercise for people with blood cancer
  • Eating well – eating healthily, safely and enjoying what you eat
  • Money and work – your rights at work and financial support you may be entitled to.
