Last 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."
