Blood Cancer is a dreaded term because people view it as a death sentence from which no reprieve is possible. However, together we have proven this wrong! On September 26, 2018, we conducted the first Myeloma Survivor Meet where 40 people suffering from Myeloma came together to prove that early diagnosis and specialized treatment by experts, along with a positive attitude results in victory over the dreaded disease.

At the Meet, which is an initiative of The Institute of Blood Disorders (IBD) at FMRI, Gurugram, these survivors met with Nutritionists who gave them guidance and tips on the correct diet to follow in order to build strength and immunity, to successfully combat the disease.

Dr. Anirudh Dayama provided an insight into the latest developments in the field of Myeloma treatment and underscored the fact that the future for the treatment of Myeloma is extremely bright and positive.

The need of the hour is early diagnosis and expert treatment. At FMRI, this is addressed through the Institute of Blood Disorders, where the Myeloma Clinic, supported by haematopathology, and genomics provides comprehensive, top of the line, empathetic care and support that leads to happy outcomes where none were thought possible earlier.
