WHY FITNESS MATTERS

Fitness matters to everyone, but it is especially important for myeloma patients. The more fit patients are, the more they are able to tolerate therapies which lead to better, longer lasting outcomes.

We hope to encourage patients and caregivers to join and build a healthier, more active lifestyle with myeloma, especially during COVID-19. Remember, "exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude, and your mood." Let's improve our life and health while building "Muscles for Myeloma!"

 

SHARE YOUR MUSCLES FOR MYELOMA STORY

During the month of September, we want to hear how YOU are building Muscles for Myeloma and will be inviting you to share your story and photos to inspire others. More to come!
