We appreciate that you have come to the IWMF website to learn about the disease called Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia (WM), and the many services provided by the IWMF. This is the page where IWMF members can renew their annual membership. And, if you are a new visitor, it is is our hope that you will now become a member of the IWMF.
The IWMF is a nonprofit organization with a volunteer Board of Trustees and member volunteers who help with our various projects, all with the same mission: to support both newly diagnosed and veteran WM patients and their caregivers; to provide educational materials, events and networking opportunities; and to fund research to find a cure for WM.
To help us carry out the many services, we have a small staff at our office in Sarasota, Florida which assists members in a variety of ways, and helps the Board of Trustees manage our various efforts:
- Members receive the Foundation’s quarterly newsletter, the Torch, and other electronic bulletins of special significance to update on new information and events. Please see a complete list of our Member Services.
- The IWMF research strategy and programs can be found here.
The IWMF does not charge for membership. However, we rely on donations from our members to fund the many services we provide. We ask that you consider making a donation according to what your heart asks and your pocket can afford. Tax receipts will be issued for all gifts. You can join online here or you can complete the downloadable Membership Form and fax it or mail it as indicated on the application.
PLEASE NOTE: Those individuals who are not residents of the US are welcome to become members of the the IWMF. In doing so, they also automatically become members of the IWMF affiliate organization and Support Groups in their country of residence. The IWMF international affiliates can be found here. The list of International Support Groups can be found here.
