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.

March is Myeloma Action Month
For 30 days, we challenge you to take action and make an impact for the entire myeloma community. This year, the International Myeloma Foundation is focusing on re·sil·ience: n. The capacity to adapt to challenges. The IMF believes that members of the myeloma community are resilient as they must continually adapt to challenges. We may not always feel resilient, but that does not mean we are not resilient! This March, join the global movement and raise multiple myeloma awareness by visiting http://mam.myeloma.org.
The Connecticut Multiple Myeloma Fighters Information Group meets on most second Wednesdays of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the Prospect Public Library, 17 Center Street, Prospect, CT 06712. For more information, please contact Michael or Robin Tuohy at 203-206-3536 or Jon Fitzpatrick at 203-709-0744. You can also reach us at email@example.com
You are not alone. The Connecticut Multiple Myeloma Fighters Information Group is part of a network of worldwide myeloma specific support groups affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation. Myeloma can very often be treated successfully, and many patients live long and productive lives after being diagnosed. We encourage you to learn as much as possible, to seek out the opinion of a myeloma expert and to form a relationship together to determine the best treatment plan for you.
At our meetings, patients, caregivers and friends share their knowledge and experiences on treatments, coping with side effects, medical insurance, participation in clinical trials, new scientific and clinical research and provide mutual support and encouragement.
We also invite experts to join us and share their knowledge. Call, email or mail to get on our email/phone list so you can receive the meeting announcements. You can also view the details of our next support group meeting, get driving directions, etc. here on our web site.
Knowledge is power. Learn more about dealing with Multiple Myeloma through the IMF's videos.
