This year during March Action Month we will work together, take accountability, and increase the visibility of myeloma. The IMF challenges YOU to put yourself on the top of that “to-do list” and join us in this wellness challenge. 

Join the challenge by visiting https://mam.myeloma.org/support-group-challenge/

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).

Each group will decide the meeting format that works best for their members: to remain virtual, or to meet in person, hybrid or alternating hybrid.  Please contact group leader below for 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.
