International Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF)
The International Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF) is a patient-founded and patient-led, nonprofit organization dedicated to a simple but compelling vision: Support everyone affected by Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM) while advancing the search for a cure. Since WM is a rare disease, the IWMF relies upon individuals for financial support and upon volunteers to do much of its work. Anyone can become a member of the IWMF – to learn how, Join Us. With the IWMF you are never alone.
