We're Here for You!
The IMF is dedicated to improving the quality of life of myeloma patients while working toward prevention and a cure.
The IMF appreciates your giving spirit! It means so much to so many myeloma patients, caregivers, and their loved ones.
You helped the IMF reach our goal this past Giving Tuesday. With your support, together, we can impact the lives of so many individuals affected by this complex disease. Thank YOU!
Tune in to the IMWG Conference Series at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday, December 8. The IMF’s International Myeloma Working Group, a collaborative body of some of the world’s top myeloma experts, will convene at this year’s virtual 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual conference. Drs. Brian G.M. Durie, Joseph Mikhael, María V. Mateos, and Thomas Martin distill, debate, and discuss the latest news and trends in the treatment of multiple myeloma from ASH.
We got some good news this week that COVID-19 vaccines are on the horizon. But even when they are widely available, we will need to stay vigilant. IMF Chairman Dr. Brian G.M. Durie says to think of the approach as the “Swiss cheese model.” Each layer of protection has a few holes, but when stacked together, the layers become stronger.
Watch the replay of the "Living Well with Myeloma: Telehealth - How to Make the Most of Your Healthcare Provider Visit" webinar. This year, many patients have the option to use telehealth services as a way to connect with their providers and remain in a safe environment. In this webinar, the speakers discuss the different types of telemedicine visits, and they provide practical tips on how to prepare for and get the most out of your virtual appointments.
Need to stay informed about the news that impacts myeloma patients, but don’t have time to read everything out there? Then be sure to follow Dr. Brian Durie’s Week in Review blog. The leading myeloma expert and IMF Chairman of the Board drills down on a wide range of topics – from the latest myeloma research results to the environmental issues that offer insight into prevention. He sifts through the data to deliver the bottom line.
This year marks the International Myeloma Foundation's (IMF) 30th anniversary, celebrating 30 years of scientific achievement with myeloma patient care at the heart of it all. What started in a garage with a borrowed typewriter is now the largest organization focused specifically on multiple myeloma. The IMF continues to push the needle forward toward a cure for myeloma with cure-focused trials and over 40 active research projects around the world. As IMF President and Founder Susie Durie says, "We are this close to the cure. I can see it on the horizon."
The IMF stands together with the Black community in calling for justice and racial equality. We believe unconditionally, that Black lives matter.
The support of loved ones allows us to continue to fund efforts to search for a cure. Check out how Fundraisers are helping in the fight against myeloma.
