We will begin with a short update on plans for this year’s Steps to a Cure Walk from Frank Glenn.

Our guest speaker,Dr. Peter Konzuk, ophthalmologistwill talk about The effects of Myeloma on the eyes.   

After his presentation there is a break for refreshments and discussion followed by a session where patients and caregivers share their experience with the disease. The mission of the Community Network is to provide hope and to empower Myeloma patients, family, caregivers and friends through education, advocacy, patient care and support and sharing experiences.

Please note: Dr. Konzuk sent along a web site about the Orbis Eye Surgery hospital plane that travels the world performing eye surgeries (https://can.orbis.org/en/the-orbis-flying-eye-hospital-is-coming-to-ottawa )He was field medical director of the Orbis Project – 1989-90. I think his talk and presentation will be very interesting.  The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital which will, coincidentally, be here in Ottawa June 1-3 and you can register on the web site if you wish to go and see it.
