What is Multiple Myeloma? According to the International Myeloma Foundation, it is a cancer of plasma cells which attack and destroy bone. Here are a few interesting facts: In the United States, there are about 100,000 patients and nearly 20,000 new cases diagnosed each year. A little daunting, but even more so that despite the fact that there are large numbers of persons diagnosed each year, there is a lack of public awareness about multiple myeloma cancer. That is why it is very important to advocate, educate and support the public and persons diagnosed with this type of cancer about multiple myeloma.
The International Multiple Myeloma Foundation is determined and dedicated to improving the quality of life of patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer while working towards prevention and a cure. At this time there is no cure, it is treatable and outcomes are constantly improving, but until there’s a cure, there will always be the International Multiple Myeloma Foundation.
