Advocacy is the act of supporting a cause or idea. It involves speaking out on issues that you care about and offering ways to improve upon them.

Anyone can become an advocate! The IMF's multiple myeloma cancer advocacy group helps guide individuals to advocate for critical health issues that affect the multiple myeloma community. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, doctor, nurse, or friend, your opinion does matter. The only way we can make a difference is to TAKE ACTION!
