PHONE TECHNOLOGY ENABLES US TO BRING YOU THESE CRUCIAL UPDATES. RECYCLING CELL PHONES MOVES US CLOSER TO A CURE!

We don’t need to tell you what shape the economy is in. We’re all affected by it, and the uncertainty of not knowing what’s going to happen next is very stressful for us all. But you can still help by participating in Cell Phones for a Cure!

We encourage you to continue the “March for Myeloma” and provide cell phone collection envelopes to your local restaurants, family, friends and neighbors. And don’t forget your doctor’s office!

Call the IMF to receive your free collection envelopes and instructions and become part of the cure!  The IMF receives a donation for every cell phone you send in.
