Amazing Myeloma Stories Shared

IMF members have been sharing their stories of courage and inspiration on our Myeloma Awareness Month website. Although March is over, the stories continue to pour in as we continue to spread myeloma awareness throughout the year. So far, 74 stories have been shared. Detailing journeys from diagnosis to treatment to accomplishments and celebrations, each story is inspiring. In her story, one writer says, "Something else to remember is that you are not alone in this" – something that reading and sharing these stories illustrates for us all. Read these incredible stories and share your own HERE.

Arizona FACT Act Moves to the State Senate Floor

On Wednesday, April 9th, HB 2078, the Fair Access to Treatment Act, passed the Arizona Senate rules committee unanimously! The bill already passed in the House in early March, so any day now the State Senate will vote to make oral anticancer treatments more affordable for patients who need them in Arizona. If you live in Arizona, help cancer patients and email your State Senator today to ask for support of HB 2078. Take Action HERE
