FUNdraising Events


Member Fundraisers
You know you want to do something in your community to raise funds and public awareness about myeloma, but deciding on what to do can be confusing. The IMF's FUNdraising program can help you. We have over 12 years of experience helping members around the world raise money for research and educational programs.

We can give your event or campaign its own web page, allowing your friends and family to donate online. Below you will find a listing of events we have going on throughout the year, and we would be happy to add yours as well. In addition, this year we’re debuting a new magazine called "Making Miracles," in which we highlight IMFers who are proactive in our mutual goals: helping to find a cure for myeloma and at the same time, spreading awareness in their local communities.

FUNdraising is fun (get it?) and easy to do, and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference. No idea is too large or too small. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer—people will want to help! We are here to provide you with the tools, assistance and expertise you'll need to make your FUNdraiser a success. Get started today, by contacting our dedicated staff person, Suzanne Battaglia, SBattaglia@myeloma.org or (800) 452-2873. She is here to chat with you about any ideas you might have. Be part of the progress of making miracles happen!
Catwalk For Cancer
All of the proceeds from this exciting event will be donated to the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) in memory of my grandfather who died two years ago from this disease. He always supported my creativity and would be so proud of my latest endeavor. Please join us for a night of fashion, music, food and fun!

Many Blooms of Life
The “Many Blooms of Life” was the second quilt I ever made. I didn’t begin quilting until November 2010 while going through my third stem cell transplant – allo (donated stem cells from my sister Kelley). A little over four years later with more than 30 quilts under my needle, it only felt right to donate and raffle my “Many Blooms of Life” quilt and raise money for the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF). IMF has diligently helped so many survivors, families and caregivers who are living with multiple myeloma. Join me and my Multiple Myeloma Support Group Team raise money by purchasing a $5.00 raffle ticket for the “Many Blooms of Life” quilt.
