Millennium Pharmaceuticals announced at the IMF's annual Support Group Leaders' Retreat, held in Tempe, Arizona on April 13-15, 2007, that Maddie Hunter has been invited to the XIth International Myeloma Workshop in Kos, Greece.
Ronny Mosston, senior director for patient advocacy and professional relations at Millennium, announced that the company will be underwriting the expenses necessary for Maddie Hunter to attend the workshop this year as a 'Patient Representative.'
