Actress and author Maureen Lipman CBE has become the first honorary patron for the International Myeloma Foundation (UK).

Ms Lipman’s husband, the renowned playwright Jack Rosenthal, died as a result of myeloma
last month. “Myeloma is a less than well known cousin to leukaemia that has a devastating affect on patients and their families – it has to ours”, explained Ms Lipman. “I want to help raise awareness of the disease, treatment and research in the hope of finding a permanent cure. I don’t want anybody to go through what we have gone through because of this little known and violent disease. I will do whatever I can to further to aims of IMF (UK).”

Ms Lipman will be attending and speaking at a reception in the House of Commons next week as part of the IMF (UK)’s annual Awareness week, held from 21 to 28 June.
