IMF's 9th Annual Comedy Gala Raises $600,000 for Myeloma Research

The IMF’s 9th Annual Comedy Celebration was a great success again this year, raising $600,000 for the Peter Boyle Research Fund and the IMF’s Black Swan Research Initiative. "Anyone who was lucky enough to be at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on Saturday night will tell you Peter Boyle's memory —and legacy of laughter – is alive and well," writes LA Times reporter Adam Tschorn in his coverage of the evening.

Calling All Michigan Myeloma Patient Advocates!


The IMF Advocacy team is part of a coalition of groups spearheading a campaign in Michigan to pass oral parity legislation that would provide access to life-saving medications to thousands of patients across the state. However, we need YOUR help to keep the momentum going! Please, click here to fill out a brief survey about your experience with accessing anticancer medications and the effect it had on you or a loved one. Your story will help persuade Michigan legislators that this issue is important to patients and their families, and will bring Michigan in line with the 40 other states that have already passed similar legislation. Please note that your information will not be used without your explicit permission. We hope you will participate.
