One of the best reasons to join the IWMF is to receive the IWMF Torch, a newsletter which covers the latest information on WM education, research activities, and treatments.
Regular features include articles written especially for the Torch by WM specialists and researchers at major cancer institutions and a summary of the very latest in WM medical research taking place all over the world. The proceedings of important conferences are summarized to convey, straight from the experts to the members of the IWMF, what's new and important concerning WM.
All activities of the Foundation are covered, from fundraising projects to the engrossing topics on IWMF-Talk to the social activities of the support groups. And every issue reminds the WM patient of the importance of good nutrition with recipes and tips to please the health-conscious gourmet.
Every issue of the Torch prints current information for the IWMF Lifeline, support group chapter listings and contact information, and the names of recent donors of gifts in tribute or in memory, as well as the names of those honored or remembered.
The Torch helps to hold our far-flung membership together as a community and keeps both patients and caregivers well informed about all that's current in WM.
The current and past issues of the Torch are available here as PDF files. Articles in the Torch are not reproduced elsewhere on the website.
