March is Myeloma Awareness Month

Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer. Yet the majority of patients have never heard of it until they are told they have the disease. To help raise awareness, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) in 2009 declared March “Myeloma Awareness Month.” Last year over 60 cities and four states did the same.   Increasing awareness of this devastating disease can lead to increased funding for research and ultimately save lives. Awareness can lead to patients asking whether their doctor has considered myeloma as a possible cause for their symptoms and can lead to earlier diagnosis.
