As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.
The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

March is Myeloma Action Month
For 30 days, we challenge you to take action and make an impact for the entire myeloma community. This year, the International Myeloma Foundation is focusing on re·sil·ience: n. The capacity to adapt to challenges. The IMF believes that members of the myeloma community are resilient as they must continually adapt to challenges. We may not always feel resilient, but that does not mean we are not resilient! This March, join the global movement and raise multiple myeloma awareness by visiting http://mam.myeloma.org.
