Mambo for Myeloma




Mambo for Myeloma

After the success of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, some very special myeloma patients and supporters got together to create a fun campaign designed around myeloma awareness. The goal was to make myeloma more well known around the globe, bringing communities together to fight for a cure. The #MamboforMyeloma initiative asks patients, caregivers, doctors, friends, family members, and groups to film themselves dancing and share a donation link for the cause. You don’t have to be an amazing dancer; the spirit is what is important. With #MamboforMyeloma, myeloma patients have the power to be seen and heard, initiating change and sharing their stories. The IMF supports #MamboforMyeloma and encourages you to share your photos and videos, as well as to donate here: https://online.myeloma.org/netcommunity/MamboforMyeloma

Mambos for Myeloma

Here’s how it works:

  • Have you, friends or family take videos of their dance moves in honor of myeloma research – any kind of dance move works!
  • Mention that it is for Multiple Myeloma  (we don’t want it confused with melanoma)
  • Challenge other friends to do the same
  • Upload your video to You Tube and tag it as Mambo for Multiple Myeloma, then share it on the Mambo for Multiple Myeloma Facebook Page
  • Donate to Mambo for Myeloma

There is no “right” dance move and interpretive dance is welcome. Do it as a group, go solo or take a dance move selfie and post. Can’t do a video? No problem! Just take a dance move photo and post it to the Mambo for Multiple Myeloma Facebook Page. Want to help spread the word? Help raise myeloma awareness by “liking” the page and sharing it.  

Do your dance today and help spread awareness!
