Support Groups Can Help Fund Research to Find a Cure for Myeloma
A new IMF campaign called “Dollars for Research” encourages local myeloma support groups to help fund a grant in their name to a recipient of the prestigious 2013 Brian D. Novis Research Grant Award. To date, the IMF has funded $4.7 million in lab-based research grants. We want to ensure that these promising young researchers continue their important task - to find a cure for myeloma! This year, we are challenging our network of over 115 support groups to raise a total of $50,000 - enough to fund an additional research grant. LEARN HOW TO HELP
