The 9/11 Remembrance and 2020 Pandemic Collide
Many of those who responded to the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001 are at a higher risk for COVID-19. During our current crisis, says Dr. Brian G.M. Durie, we must continue keeping the most vulnerable among us safe.
September Is Blood Cancer Awareness Month
With your help, the IMF’s Blood Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) campaign strives to reach outside of the myeloma community to educate those who are unaware of or unfamiliar with the disease. We encourage you to click the link below and download shareable graphics to post on your social media channels!

And This Too Shall Pass….
Once again, the IMF is hosting a raffle for a 10-day stay at the Villa Ono Oasis in historic Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. While many of us have been affected by COVID-19, we hope to remind you that this too shall pass. If you purchase the winning $50 raffle ticket, you could find yourself just minutes from the Hawaiian coastline. Note: Bookings will be in the future based on mutual availability with you and the property owner.
