International Myeloma Foundation President and CEO Yelak Biru shares his thoughts on Blood Cancer Awareness Month
Yelak Biru
IMF President and CEO; 28-Year Myeloma Patient
“With the development of so many new treatments over the past 20 years, patients can reimagine living with myeloma. That’s why it’s so important for the IMF to continue putting patients at the center of research, education, advocacy, and support. With all the recent developments in the IMF’s intense search for a cure, there is more hope than ever before.”
