Covid Update

The IMF applauds the efforts of the volunteer leaders that conduct local myeloma support group meetings and virtual meetings.

The IMF is cautiously optimistic for local support groups to return back to in-person meetings when it’s safe in your community. We suggest that each group follow local, state and federal guidelines to help the volunteer leaders to determine when it will be safe to start meeting in-person again. The IMF will continue to provide Zoom licenses to all myeloma support groups that still meet virtually or have hybrid meetings.  Please contact the group leader for meeting details.

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.
