STUDIO CITY, Calif., Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. This year, the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF) is bringing multiple myeloma—the second most common type of blood cancer—to the forefront through its #kNOWMyeloma campaign.
In 2010, the US Congress designated September as Blood Cancer Awareness Month to create awareness, increase fundraising, and support patients affected by all types of blood cancers.
For 2022, the IMF’s goal is to reach people who may not have heard of myeloma as well as those who are living with this type of blood cancer. Our aim is to increase awareness of multiple myeloma while engaging with the myeloma community to inspire them to continue advocating for those impacted by the disease.
Throughout the month of September, the IMF will ask one simple question: “Do You Know Myeloma?” The IMF invites everyone to explore the campaign through the IMF’s Blood Cancer Awareness Month website.
When you visit the IMF’s Blood Cancer Awareness website, you will find a rich trove of myeloma facts, research breakthroughs in myeloma treatment, and inspirational stories of hope and resilience from those living with the disease. The IMF encourages you to share these infographics on social media while using the hashtag #kNOWMyeloma. You can download the infographics …
