Improving Lives ∙ Finding the Cure
Introduction
Founded in 1990, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) is dedicated to our mission: to improve the quality of life of myeloma patients while working toward prevention and a cure.

Your support helps us provide a wide range of programs and services to the myeloma community in the areas of Research, Education, Support, and Advocacy.

Research: The International Myeloma Foundation is the leader in globally collaborative myeloma research. The IMF brings together the world’s leading experts in the most successful and unique way through the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG), which is charting the course to a cure, mentoring the next generation of innovative investigators, and improving lives through better care.

In 2012, the IMF launched the Black Swan Research Initiative, a unique project to develop a definitive cure for myeloma. The BSRI now joins the groundbreaking and innovative myeloma research the IMF has actively supported for more than twenty years.

Education: The IMF’s educational seminars and workshops provide up-to-date information to myeloma patients and their families directly from leading myeloma researchers and practicing clinicians. Our library of over 100 publications is updated annually and available free of charge to all who need them.

Support: The IMF maintains a network of over 150 support groups worldwide and provides training for the hundreds of men and women who volunteer to lead these group in their communities Our toll-free Hotline (800-452-CURE) answers questions and provides information and support to thousands of families each year.

Advocacy: The IMF Advocacy program helps guide individuals to advocate for critical health issues that affect the Myeloma community. The IMF leads the Patient Equal Access Coalition to PEAC and the State Patient Equal Access Coalition (SPEAC) to advocate for parity in insurance coverage for oral cancer therapies.
