As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.
The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

Update: R.I. MMSG - Annual Comedy Fundraiser
This event has been postponed. As you know, myeloma patients are especially susceptible to viruses because of their immune systems. Please check back for a new future date. Thank you for your anticipated continued support.
