Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer; however, many patients have never heard of it until they are told they have the disease. The International Myeloma Foundation and our supporters work tirelessly and passionately to increase awareness of myeloma to align with our core mission: “Knowledge is Power".
In 2009, the IMF was the first organization to declare March as “Myeloma Awareness Month” (MAM). Since that time, we have elevated our program to “Myeloma ACTION Month.” This year’s campaign focuses on Myeloma Warriors – individuals surviving with the disease, supporting loved ones, or helping to find the cure.
We ask individuals like you – Myeloma Warriors – to raise awareness of this rare disease. Together, we can guide patients to ask their doctors to consider myeloma as a possible cause for their symptoms, leading to earlier diagnosis. So this month, take ACTIONS that matter. Each of our actions can help to save lives.
The International Myeloma Working Group’s (IMWG) guidelines are improving outcomes for patients around the world. The IMF would like to provide those guidelines to your medical team. Please share your doctors’ contact information with us and we will make sure that they are sent the most current treatment guidelines for free.Download Form
