March is Myeloma Action Month. This year the theme is “I am Resilient.” This theme was inspired by an art installation shown at the International Myeloma Foundation’s 13th Annual Comedy Celebration in October 2019 which featured 100 photographs from IMF-affiliated support group leaders.
In March 2020 this “Wall of Resilience” has expanded to social media where patients and advocates are posting their stores on social medical with the hashtag #IAMRESILIENT2020 to raise awareness and show support for each other.
MEDUCOM has had the privilege to work with many dedicated physicians and pharma employees in multiple myeloma over the years and have heard many stories about how resilient these patients are. In honour of myeloma awareness month we’re displaying some of their stories in the lunchroom over the month.
