We believe that educated and involved patients can drive better outcomes for themselves and accelerate a cure for their own disease. The mission of the Myeloma Crowd is to help patients:

1. Understand. On the Myeloma Crowd website, we provide simplified information on myeloma topics. When patients know more, they ask better questions of their healthcare team and receive higher quality care. 

2. Participate. If patients want to accelerate the pace of research and a myeloma cure, they can participate in clinical trials.  We feature the latest in research from top myeloma specialists on Myeloma Crowd Radio where patients can learn more about open clinical trials. We also partner with SparkCures to make searching for a myeloma clinical trial an easy process. 

3. Accelerate. Patients, along with their friends and family, can help fund leading edge research being performed by talented myeloma experts. The Myeloma Crowd Initiative is funding two specific research projects in order to find solutions for highly aggressive myeloma. Our process brought world renown myeloma experts and educated patients together to select the very best research for patients who are not responding to today’s available therapies.

The Myeloma Crowd and CrowdCare Foundation were created by myeloma patient Jenny Ahlstrom. The Myeloma Crowd site now features a wealth of content contributed by other myeloma survivors including Lizzy Smith, Gary Petersen, Jim Omel, Eric Hansen and other patient contributors.

We believe that together, patients can be part of the solution to better care and cure discovery. If you’d like to contribute to the Myeloma Crowd, join us and Become a Contributor.
