Blood Cancer Awareness Month
September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month
This Blood Cancer Awareness Month, the IMF’s goal is to raise awareness of multiple myeloma among those who may not have heard of the disease. Help the IMF achieve its goal and educate those within your community by sharing myeloma facts, scientific innovations in myeloma treatment, and inspirational stories of those living with the disease.
We are counting on you to create awareness about blood cancers and to make an impact on the lives of those living with multiple myeloma by educating others about the disease.
We invite you to ask one simple question:
Do you #knowmyeloma?
Your kind generosity goes a long way and provides patients with the latest educational resources direct from top experts in the myeloma field, as well as access to virtual webinars, support group assistance, support for advocates furthering myeloma-related legislation, and funds for a cure. Donate now and show your support.
Educate, inspire, and raise awareness by sharing facts and stats about multiple myeloma and the International Myeloma Foundation, quotes from myeloma experts and from patients living with the disease.
