Your Congressional representatives make decisions each and every day that impact your health? It’s true! Each year the United States Congress determines how much of the federal budget will be dedicated to medical research as well as how patients get treatment for myeloma.
To make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. The involvement of myeloma patients and their loved ones—along with doctors, nurses, and researchers—is vital to IMF’s mission of improving the quality of life of myeloma patients while working toward prevention and a cure.
