For years, the IMF has been working with advocates from across the country on state and federal legislation. The Myeloma ACTION team unites all of our advocates to build a community that will foster education, action and empowerment. This team works together to strengthen the support for our federal legislation on oral chemotherapy parity, build strong grassroots networks in every state, and raise awareness of myeloma across the country.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ? Margaret Mead
At the IMF, we know that to make a difference we must all come together and do what we can. With enough voices, we can improve the quality of life for myeloma patients by advocating for more research funding, insisting on quality health care, and educating the communities around us on this deadly disease. The Action Team collects postcards in support of oral chemotherapy parity legislation, organizes in-district meetings with federal and state legislators, and raises the visibility of multiple myeloma around the country.
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” ? Edward Everett Hale
This team is for anyone committed to making a difference for all cancer patients. No matter your limitations, we will provide opportunities for everyone to make their voice heard. Our advocates are the backbone of the Advocacy Program at the IMF, so we thank you sincerely for all you have done and will do to make the world a better place for myeloma patients and their families.
