In accordance with the measures of the Government of Quebec to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to avoid any risk to the health of those concerned, the 9th edition of the Défi Cyclo-myélome for the benefit of research on multiple myeloma will take place in virtual mode on Saturday, May 29, 2021.
Multiple myeloma doesn't take a break Dr. Richard LeBlanc, holder of the Myeloma Canada Chair in Multiple Myeloma at the University of Montreal at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (HMR), and his team count on our support to advance research and improve the care of patients who suffer of this terrible cancer. These people living with multiple myeloma and their loved ones come from all over Quebec and even beyond to seek treatment at the HMR and cannot afford a break.
“In the current context, your support is more vital than ever,” says Dr. LeBlanc. “My team and I need you to continue fighting this cancer. People living with multiple myeloma are very vulnerable. They need our support more than ever. Thank you for showing solidarity with people who suffer from multiple myeloma! " #MonDéfiMyélomePerso

For the past 8 years, our goals have been to raise awareness about multiple myeloma and to raise funds for research on this cancer for the Myeloma Canada Chair in Multiple Myeloma at the University of Montreal at Hôpital Maisonneuve- Rosemont.
Together with all participants and donors we join forces to hopefully eradicate this cancer one day. Even more, we pay tribute to patients who fight it, to researchers who try to unmask it and those who contribute to the well-being of those affected.
