The purpose of the SoCal Myeloma Community Chapter (SMCC) is to connect, educate, and support myeloma patients and caregivers throughout Southern California and surrounding regions.
The April meeting will focus on building and growing your myeloma community, Step #1 in the #CureinFive initiative. Working together we can help each other achieve better long-term health and speed the discovery of a cure. This interactive meeting will focus on:
Todd Kennedy is a Myeloma Coach and grateful patient. His background includes over 30 years working in the pharmaceutical industry until he and his wife Diane retired from their respective first careers to devote their time and talents as patient advocates, Myeloma Crowd coaches, and ambassadors for City of Hope’s expansion to Orange County. Todd is living life to the fullest with his wife and sons in Orange County, CA.
Diane has lived in Southern California for most of her life. Her husband Todd was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2017. She spent her career working in marketing until January 2020 when she and Todd retired from their respective first careers, to devote their time and talents as patient advocates, Myeloma Crowd coaches, and ambassadors for City of Hope’s expansion to Orange County. She and her husband are committed to helping improve and advance cancer care for all patients and feel a collaborative, virtual support group that draws from this region is an excellent way to help current patients and their families, and future generations of cancer thrivers as well.
Rozalynn Hite is the Myeloma Coach Director and wife of myeloma patient Richard Hite. Rozalynn is an occupational therapist and mother of three beautiful children.
