This year during March Action Month we will work together, take accountability, and increase the visibility of myeloma. The IMF challenges YOU to put yourself on the top of that “to-do list” and join us in this wellness challenge.

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).

Each group will decide the meeting format that works best for their members: to remain virtual, or to meet in person, hybrid or alternating hybrid.  Please contact group leader below for details.

The Willmar, MN support group members enjoyed our first VIRTUAL support group meeting on June 13. These virtual meetings can inspire us to connect and be social and supportive, while we physically distance and stay safe.

Our guest speaker was Robin Tuohy, Vice President Support Groups, from the International Myeloma Foundation. Robin provided updates and resources on myeloma as well as Covid-19 as it relates to myeloma patients.
