Looking Ahead to Myeloma Awareness Month


During the month of March each year, the IMF raises awareness for myeloma. Patients share their stories, advocates get their local representatives to acknowledge the campaign, and the online conversation is robust. 2014 saw over 50 cities and states signing proclamations to join in officially marking the 31-day period as Myeloma Awareness Month (#MAM). And it is never too early to begin planning for that special time of year!
