The IMF has created the Ted Vasil Scholarship Award. This scholarship, donated by Ted’s family and friends, will be awarded to a young patient in the form of complimentary registration to an IMF Patient & Family Seminar.
Coping with myeloma can be stressful both emotionally and financially. The Ted Vasil Scholarship will enable the recipient to attend a seminar where he/she will receive both state of the art information as well as emotional support. The generosity of this donation will enable the IMF to offer one scholarship per seminar for all foreseeable IMF Patient & Family Seminars.
If you or someone you know is eligible and would like to apply for this scholarship, please forward their name and contact information to TheIMF@myeloma.org or by fax at (818) 487-7454. Recipients will be “pulled from a hat” of all eligible nominees one month prior to an upcoming seminar and notified immediately.
Ralph Barnett of San Diego, CA was chosen as the first recipient of the Ted Vasil Scholarship Award. This sponsorship enabled him to attend the IMF Patient & Family Seminar in Los Angeles.
