Rotary Outreach Myeloma Program
An ongoing community service program of the Rotary Club of Camberwell in collaboration with Myeloma Australia
Tackling cancer in regional Australia, one nurse at a time.
"People living with cancer in regional and remote locations need and deserve the same treatment resources and outcomes that are more readily accessible in capital cities."
Camberwell Rotary and Myeloma Australia
A Rotary Community Collaboration
Perhaps best known for its traditional annual Art Show the Rotary Club of Camberwell meets in the inner-east of Melbourne. The club was chartered in 1956 and has enjoyed a fine history of community service over more than sixty years.
The club played a role in the establishment of cancer charity Myeloma Australia twenty-five years ago and has remained engaged with the organisation throughout its development. Today, Myeloma Australia is a nationally successful myeloma specific charity – the only one in Australia.

"Tackling cancer one nurse at a time"
Simply, it’s not “fair to all concerned” that people living with myeloma - and all cancers - in regional and remote Australia “have a poorer chance of survival” than their big city peers.
Rotary through the ROMP initiative, is making a difference that promises to grow. By upskilling registered nurses employed in regional cancer treatment centres, treatment and outcome benefits will flow to regional and remote cancer patients.
With the support of our sponsors and our engaged regional Rotary Clubs, ROMP will offer a number of scholarships for nurses in regional Victoria and New South Wales in the 2023/2024 Rotary year.
