Multiple Myeloma Program

Supportive Care

The complications of multiple myeloma can impact the body in many ways. The Multiple Myeloma Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute offers a variety of complementary therapies and services that focus on physical and emotional well-being and help patients alleviate side effects of treatment such as nausea, fatigue, and pain.

We encourage patients to join support groups, consult with social workers, and take advantage of free access many services that provide support to patients and their families.

The Linda B. and Robert B. Wiggins Wellness and Integrative Health Center and the Supportive Oncology and Survivorship service provide patients with holistic support and a sense of balance and well-being. It offers complementary therapies such as nutrition counseling, fitness and exercise, yoga classes, acupuncture, and help with anxiety, distress, and pain management.

These non-medical therapies help reduce tension and give patients a sense of control over their bodies. They are also designed to increase the quality of life and improve the mood and self-esteem of people with multiple myeloma.

In addition, the G. Mitchell Morris Cancer Learning Center provides patients and their loved ones access to the latest books, magazines, and journals to help answer questions about cancer and to help individuals coordinate with their health care team to make better treatment decisions.

"Your excellent treatment for me has given hope to a lot of myeloma patients that it is possible to still be surviving after 9 years (and still counting). Thanks for everything you have done to extend my life. I sure am enjoying my time off of treatment."
