Thunder Bay Multiple Myeloma March

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Good Morning,

I hope this message finds you well.

To introduce myself, my name is Siobhan. I work with Pickering Communications, which has been asked by Myeloma Canada to generate media coverage about the upcoming Multiple Myeloma March in your community.

Please let me know if you are interested in the story below. Nice reading.

In 2019 and at just 37 years old, Tanya Zigomanis, mother of two young daughters, was diagnosed with myeloma, a little-known and incurable blood cancer.

Tanya is thankful for the treatments she has received. She has experienced, firsthand, the importance that advances in myeloma research is having on the lives of those living with this incurable cancer. This is why on August 20, 2022, Tanya and her family will be participating in the 6th annual Thunder Bay’s Multiple Myeloma March taking place at the Delta Hotels Thunder Bay, 2240 Sleeping Giant Parkway.

Today, Tanya is the Ontario representative of Myeloma Canada’s Patient Advisory Council (PAC) and is keen to help raise awareness for myeloma by sharing her story.

Myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer. Every day, 11 new Canadians are diagnosed with myeloma.

Pictures of previous editions of the March can be viewed, here.

To schedule an interview with Tanya or a representative from Myeloma Canada, please contact 514-802-7137 or by email at

Thank you,

Siobhan Boël.
