Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw's announcement this week that he has multiple myeloma is shining a national spotlight on what is, for many people, a little-known cancer. "We were saddened to learn that Tom Brokaw has multiple myeloma and everyone at the IMF wishes him well," said IMF Chairman Dr. Brian Durie. "Fortunately, advancements in myeloma research and treatment make it possible for many patients to live active lives for years. His courageous announcement raises awareness of myeloma – which is absolutely critical to ensuring positive outcomes."
The IMF supports all myeloma patients through its robust research, advocacy, support and education programs, while the IMF's signature Black Swan Research Initiative® is finding a pathway to a cure for myeloma.
