Soon after, Jameca attended her first IMF Patient & Family Seminar. She has now attended dozens of IMF meetings and conferences, including the annual Support Group Leaders’ Summit. Not only is she incredibly involved with the IMF, Jameca is now in her 40s, still in remission, and maintenance-drug-free. To give back, she organized a Scrumptious Holiday Cookie FUNdraiser. Help Jameca raise money for the IMF by purchasing one of her holiday gift boxes of cookies now.
