Covid Update

As most of the world is still facing the effects of the spread of the COVID-19 respiratory virus, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to recommend that all myeloma support groups meet virtually.

We take the health and safety of our myeloma support group members seriously and will continue to hold our meetings virtually to ensure the safety of our members. For additional updates on COVID-19 coronavirus, please click this link:
