Advocacy

Advocacy is the act of supporting a cause or idea. It involves speaking out on issues that you care about and offering ways to improve upon them.

Anyone can become an advocate! The IMF Advocacy group helps guide individuals to advocate for critical health issues that affect the Myeloma community. Whether you are a myeloma patient, caregiver, doctor, nurse, or friend, your opinion does matter. The only way we can make a difference is to TAKE ACTION!

Veterans Against Myeloma

Over the years, the IMF has been a resource for veterans seeking information about myeloma. Talking with vets has made us aware that many are in need of resources that can guide them through the process of applying for Veterans Administration (VA) benefits, including disability. The IMF’s new Veterans Against Myeloma (VAM) website addresses that need, providing key links to relevant VA websites, to state veterans assistance offices and to national veterans service organizations whose service officers help vets with the VA process.
