Dear Friends,

Arizona Myeloma Network (AzMN) was founded10 years ago. We could not have reached this significant milestone without your generous support!  

I am proud to say that ALL of our programs are FREE to the public and all donations are spent in Arizona! In the USA over 83,367 people live with myeloma and over 2041 people are newly diagnosed every month. Myeloma is an incurable cancer and it is very difficult for Myeloma patients to learn about their disease.

Did you know over 600 cancer patients, caregivers and families attended our conferences and caregiver seminars in 2014? Electronic and social media campaigns reached many more. Our programs provide needed education, tools and support enabling cancer patients, caregivers and families to manage the disease.

Your donation has a personal and immediate positive impact. Here is what people are saying:

“Keep helping us to survive…My husband and I attended because my sister was diagnosed w/MM; It gave me hope…Excellent job every year…Continue to partner with our community and clinics…First conference I attended, all the info was very helpful/interesting…Keep doing what you do so well.”

These are powerful reminders of how important it is to help patients get the knowledge they need to obtain the best treatment and outcomes.  Since our inception in 2004 I have seen myeloma patients improve the quality of their lives and live longer. My husband, Jack, a 23 year multiple myeloma survivor, inspires me every day!

AzMN plans for 2015 are important and challenging

  • Living with Myeloma Conference on Saturday, March 21, 2015 and Myeloma Research Roundtable on Friday, March 20, 2015 are your chance to meet and listen to premier doctors and researchers in the myeloma field.
  • Cancer Caregivers Educational Support Program (CCESP™) our NEW curriculum launches January 31, 2015 with 3 more NEW seminars by May.  This program is designed to help cancer caregivers cope with emotional and physical health issues related to caregiving. Programs are presented throughout the year.
  • Tissue Donor Awareness Program (TDAP™) raises awareness of how tissue donation is critical to finding a cure for Myeloma. TDAP™ program is available to ALL medical, scientific and community organizations and are tailored to fit the audience.

Please consider a donation today to continue our work.
