Raise Your Voice Web Series

Every voice makes a difference. Many voices make change!

At the IMF, we know that to make a difference we must all come together and do what we can.  With enough voices, we can improve the quality of life for myeloma patients by advocating for more research funding, insisting on quality health care, and educating the communities around us on this deadly disease. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, doctor, nurse, or friend, your voice and your story make a difference!
