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. 

Take a Closer Look at Myeloma

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?
