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 Action Month

Lake Norman Multiple Myeloma Support Group was in full force for MAM. Below are some of the objectives we completed as part of Myeloma Action Month.  As Warriors, we want to bring more awareness to this cause.  To see other warriors, please visit http://mam.myeloma.org/

What is Myeloma Action Month (MAM)?

Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer; however, many patients have never heard of it until they are diagnosed. The International Myeloma Foundation’s Myeloma Action Month campaign focuses on Myeloma Warriors.

But just what is a Myeloma Warrior? According to IMF Chairman of the Board Dr. Brian G.M. Durie, “Myeloma warriors are patients who seek out the best for themselves while also helping others.” Dr. Durie recognizes that not all patients may not be in the condition to reach others. In this case, he suggests that a patient can have a friend or a caregiver be their “Warrior-in-Chief.” As Dr. Durie summarizes in this video, having the Warrior Spirit means having “energy and resilience” to live well and care for those with myeloma.

We invite YOU – Myeloma Warriors – those living with the disease, supporting loved ones, or providing healthcare to patients – to raise awareness this Myeloma Action Month. Explore this site to learn more about specific actions you can take. Together, we can take ACTIONS that matter. Each of our actions can help to save lives.
