Covid Update

The IMF applauds the efforts of the volunteer leaders that conduct local and virtual myeloma support group meetings.  We are cautiously optimistic for local support groups to return back to in-person or hybrid meetings (combination of in-person and virtual) when it is safe in each community.

Leaders and groups are encouraged to use this updated tool and guidance from the CDC to help each group to decide when and how to transition to in-person or hybrid meetings.  The IMF will continue to provide Zoom licenses to all myeloma support groups that continue to meet virtually or have hybrid meetings.

Myeloma Voice: Arlene Preisendorf

Diagnosed with myeloma in February 2009 at the age of 47, Arlene Preisendorf recalls contacting Support Group Leader Dr. Jim Omel just a few days later. She shares how Jim connected with her and her husband by talking about his own experience with the disease, and also providing them with breadth of IMF pamphlets on myeloma.

Making a diagnosis for myeloma can be difficult......even for a doctor!  Here are two articles Jim wrote to help explain how easy it can be to get misdiagnosed.
