Grassroots fundraisers are taking place across the country as friends of the IMF help raise awareness of myeloma while supporting essential research, patient education, and advocacy programs. Since 1997, we have been working with people just like you to create and produce fundraisers for the IMF. We are with you every step of the way! Anyone can participate – you can be 8 or 80 – and fundraisers can be as easy as hosting a bake sale or luncheon, and as elaborate as a golf tournament.
Here is a word from the Director of Member Events, Suzanne Battaglia: Click here
The 5th Annual Red House Carnival will be a celebration for the Myeloma community and my father’s legacy. In February of 2001, my dad Jeff was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He was told that his years were numbered, so he began cherishing each day. My siblings and I wanted to do something to help find a cure for the disease that was threatening to take our favorite person. The Wamp Swim successfully funded two research grants in honor of our dad - a feat of which he was most proud.
My name is Sylvia Hairston, and I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (MM), November 2016. I was speechless, but immediately felt hopeful because I thought it was the cancer that Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare bone cancer had been diagnosed with.
I am very hopeful believing/knowing that I will be healed one day. I’m on a mission to bring awareness, and to raise as much money as I can to find a cure and to find more options for treatments!
That's the fundamental idea behind (c)3. We source our grapes from some of the best vineyards in the world, and give our profits to some of the best charities working to make a difference. Join us. Purchase a bottle and all of the profits will benefit the International Myeloma Foundation. Cheers!
Multiple Myeloma is an incurable blood cancer that used to be pretty rare. Unfortunately, more and more people are being diagnosed every day. The month of March is Myeloma Action Month and in support of that, our Southeastern Virginia (SEVA) Myeloma Networking Group is asking for your help to find a cure. The International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) is working on finding that cure but they need our help. The members of the SEVA Networking Group are asking you to share this request with your family, friends, and neighbors to join our “Ten to Win” challenge. If 10 people would donate just $10 and then challenge their family and friends to donate $10 and then they ask their family and friends to donate $10, and so on, those funds would be used to b IMF to develop that cure. Please join our challenge! We are just so close to that “C” word….CURE!
I want to raise $50K that the IMF can use as an educational grant because today most patients diagnosed with Myeloma have still never heard of it. And with more treatments available (but still no cure), education is even more important. Please consider making a donation to support IMF’s patient education program so that others can benefit like I have getting to spend more time with the family...especially the grandkids!
