Shakira Grant with patientHelp us understand how Multiple Myeloma and its treatments affect everyday life

We are looking for participants for our PaCE-MM (Patient and Care partner Experiences living with Multiple Myeloma) study at UNC Health. We want to hear how this disease and its treatments impact the lives of you and your care partner.

You may be able to take part if:

  • You live in North Carolina
  • You are 55 years of age or older
  • You have been recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma
  • You will start treatment for multiple myeloma soon
  • You also have an adult care partner (ex: spouse/partner or adult child)

Participants will be asked to complete three assessments over six months providing feedback through surveys and could also be invited to participate in two study interviews if they have a care partner. For your time and participation in the PaCE-MM study, you will receive up to $145.
