Rotary clubs of Horsham, Horsham East and Camberwell have combined to bring Rotary Outreach Myeloma Program, ROMP, to the region to coincide with the March 2021 centenary of Rotary in Australia.
Myeloma Australia support nurse Emma-Jane ‘EJ’ Furphy hosted an initial support-group meeting at Wimmera Cancer Centre in late February.
Horsham ROMP team members Gary Green and Chris Hood and Wimmera Cancer Centre manager Carmel O’Kane organised the meeting, which provided people living with Myeloma and their supporters who attended first-hand medical advice and support from each other.
