Myeloma Beacon
The mission of The Myeloma Beacon is to improve the treatment, care, and support available to current and future multiple myeloma patients worldwide.

To accomplish this mission, The Beacon has been online since 2008, providing independent and objective news and support to the multiple myeloma community.

In the process, The Beacon has become one of the most trusted and widely read sources of myeloma-related research updates, patient perspectives, original physician contributions, and online discussion.

All Beacon articles are written in language accessible to the lay reader. The articles also contain enough detailed information, however, to serve the needs of readers seeking a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
The Myeloma Beacon is published by The Beacon Foundation for Health, a non-profit organization registered in Pennsylvania.

For financial support, The Beacon depends on donations made by patients, caregivers, medical pro­fes­sionals, and others interested in aiding the myeloma community. The Beacon receives no funding from pharma­ceutical or biotech companies (or any organi­za­tions affiliated with them).
