Myeloma Institute Ambassador Program 

The Myeloma Institute has enlisted a team of experienced patient ambassadors across the U.S. to serve as advisors and sounding boards for new patients.

Experienced patients know better than anyone what new patients are going through. They can be good listeners and alleviate concerns.

If you are interested in becoming one of our Patient Ambassadors please contact Sonya Thornes at 501-804-3557 or email SRThornes@uams.edu 

Myeloma Volunteer Program

Specially trained volunteers assist new patients on their first day of diagnostic testing by escorting them to appointments. The MVP volunteers, also known as “Most Vital Pals,” help new patients navigate the campus as they provide warm and welcoming hospitality.  Interested in becoming a MVP?  Contact Susan Jones at jonessusank@uams.edu

Host A “Fun”raiser

Third party events are those that sponsored by individuals, families, groups, or organizations who want to help raise funds and awareness to benefit the Myeloma Institute.  We are extremely grateful for the generosity and compassion that third-party fundraisers have shown to help support our mission of accelerating curative therapies for myeloma and related diseases.

If you are interested in hosting your own third-party a “fun”raising event to benefit the Myeloma Institute, we are available for questions and guidance.  Learn more.
