Welcome to Veterans Against Myeloma (VAM)

A Growing Team of Veterans Battling Multiple Myeloma (MM).

Over the years, the IMF has been a resource for veterans seeking information about myeloma. Talking with vets has made us aware that many are in need of resources to better understand their diagnosis, find information about myeloma and support one another through mutual experiences. The IMF’s Veterans Against Myeloma (VAM) website addresses that need, providing key links to relevant VA websites, to state veterans assistance offices and to national veterans service organizations whose service officers help vets with the VA benefit process.The VAM website is regularly, and includes email alerts about breaking news and links to articles of interest. If you’re a vet and find this resource useful, please pass it on to others you know who may be going through a similar experience. Welcome to Veterans Against Myeloma.

Our Target:

Multiple Myeloma – a cancer of the plasma cells, a type of white blood cell in the bone marrow.

Our Goal:

Win the battle against Myeloma – Educate Veterans and Find a Cure.

Our Plan:

Join forces to support Myeloma education and research.
