IWMF Enhances LIFELINE

May 21, 2015

LIFELINE is an IWMF member service, which provides peer-to-peer support on various WM topics between patients and/or caregivers who share a WM journey.

There are currently 38 topics on the IWMF LIFELINE. While some of the topics have to do with various treatments, others deal with issues of living with WM.

We have recently added ten new LIFELINE volunteers on a number of topics to provide easier access for those who need support, with some volunteers covering multiple topics. In addition, the following new topics have been added to IWMF LIFELINE:

  • Treatments
    • Bendamustine and Rituxan (BR)
    • Dexamethasone
    • Dexamethasone, Rituxan, and Cyclophosphamide (DRC)
    • Everolimus (RAD001)
    • Rituxan Maintenance
  • Amyloidosis due to WM
  • Anemia due to WM
  • Emotional Aspects of WM

The LIFELINE topics and volunteers can be found here. We encourage you to check the site frequently for updates.

If you have suggestions for topics or you would like to become a LIFELINE volunteer, please contact us.
