17 Days Until Myeloma Action Month
Ready to nurture your resilience? Follow the IMF's Myeloma Action Month (MAM) March calendar that features "31 Days of Resilience.” The focus is on small actions you can do each day of the week. Some examples include taking a walk, catching up with a family member, or watching the sunrise. And, if you are not up for the daily action, perhaps you will choose to share a fact about myeloma on your social media channels. The ways to get involved this March are easy and varied, so take a look at the MAM website to get your creative juices flowing!
