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.

Multiple Myeloma is cancer of the Bone Marrow. More specifically, it is an uncontrolled growth of plasma cells. Although there is no known cure, there are many approaches to help myeloma patients live better and longer. As a result, people with myeloma can sometimes live for many years. There remains much controversy about how to treat the disease. Education and support are key. 

If you are living with Multiple Myeloma, you need not be alone. You'll find others in the Northwest Arkansas area whose experience can be a source of strength, hope, and inspiration. If you are a caregiver or caring friend, your needs will be addressed with programs sensitive to your particular needs. We invite you to join us and to benefit from a wealth of knowledge, comfort, friendship, and good times.

Whether you are from Rogers or Fayetteville, Bella Vista or Huntsville, Silom Springs or Prairie Grove, come visit us. We will make you feel at home!
