The International Myeloma Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of multiple myeloma patients while working toward
prevention and a cure through our four founding principles: Research, Education, Support, and Advocacy.
The International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) is harnessing the power of myeloma patients, their families, and the myeloma community at large to raise awareness of the disease during Myeloma Action Month (MAM), starting March 1, 2019. In 2009, the IMF was the first organization to declare March as Myeloma Awareness Month. The organization elevated the campaign in 2016 to Myeloma Action Month to encourage a more dynamic, proactive approach.
