Founded in 1990, the International Myeloma Foundation is the world’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to finding a cure for multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma is a complex, and often misdiagnosed,cancer of the bone marrow that attacks and destroys bone. Over 30,000 people will receive this diagnosis in the next year. The IMF focuses its efforts in four key areas: education, research, support, and advocacy. The IMF serves more than 400,000 patients, families, caregivers, and healthcare professionals in 140 countries, and is the leading international gateway for information and resources in the fight against myeloma.
