As the COVID-19 respiratory virus spreads around the world, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) continues to be here for you. The IMF takes the health and safety of myeloma patients seriously. To contain the spread of the virus, we recommend cancelling in-person support group meetings.
The IMF has offered to support group leaders the technology and instruction to host virtual meetings using GoToMeeting. Please contact your support group leader for specific details regarding your meeting.

The Multiple Myeloma Sharing Sessions was not going to have a meeting in May, as there was the option to attend two big Myeloma Events - Kyle Symposium and the IMF Regional Workshop.
These were both cancelled, so we thought we would arrange another Zoom meeting for our group for our regular 3rd Saturday from 10 to Noon. With the prospect of MN “opening up”, we thought we could focus on COVID and Myeloma-specific considerations.
If interested, please contact Teresa at Rochester@IMFsupport.org

We offer the opportunity for informal discussions and questions, and occasionally have invited speakers to provide information about various topics related to the cancer experience.
We meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
