Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with myeloma.

Miles for Myeloma

Emma Sue is embarking on a challenging journey in aid of Myeloma UK throughout 2024.  She will be taking part in a series of difficult physical challenges. In March she walked 10 miles a day and raised over £4,000 and in June she will swim 15 lengths a day swimming front crawl, a brand new swimming stroke she is training for.

Emma Sue’s Story

“My husband was diagnosed with this incurable bone marrow cancer very recently. It came out of the blue and it’s a very rare cancer.  Nick is currently having chemotherapy in preparation for a stem cell transplant later in the year, which we hope will give 18 months – 2 years remission. However, the cancer will return. I want to raise awareness of the disease and raise vital funds to help with research.

This cancer has no cure but treatments are improving all the time and finding better and better treatments and perhaps one day a cure, relies on hard cash.

I want to raise £10k by the end of the year. That’s 10% of Myeloma UK’s £100k target which shows just how much your difference YOUR donation will make.

What is Myeloma?

Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma, is a blood cancer arising from plasma cells. At any one time there are around 24,000 people living with myeloma in the UK.

It accounts for 15 per cent of blood cancers, and two per cent of all cancers.

Unlike many cancers, myeloma does not exist as a lump or tumour. Myeloma affects where bone marrow is normally active in an adult, such as in the bones of the spine, skull and pelvis.

The most common symptoms of myeloma include bone pain, recurring infection, kidney damage and fatigue.
