Covid Update

The IMF applauds the efforts of the volunteer leaders that conduct local and virtual myeloma support group meetings.  We are cautiously optimistic for local support groups to return back to in-person or hybrid meetings (combination of in-person and virtual) when it is safe in each community.

Leaders and groups are encouraged to use this updated tool and guidance from the CDC to help each group to decide when and how to transition to in-person or hybrid meetings.  The IMF will continue to provide Zoom licenses to all myeloma support groups that continue to meet virtually or have hybrid meetings.

Bev - Myeloma Warrior

Bev Long, member of the Greater Richmond Multiple Myeloma Foundation, is a flutist for the Richmond (VA) Concert Band, is part of beautiful concert band performances that were recorded since the pandemic hit and severely limited the opportunity for the concert band to play live. 

Bev noted that the concerts clearly demonstrate resilience, for both the band and Bev personally. Being able to play in the band again is a personal achievement for Bev.  Bev took off a year from the band (2018) for treatment & transplant after the diagnosis.  (This included surgery and rehab for a broken arm, thanks to myeloma!)   

Bev can be seen and heard playing her flute in these concerts below.
