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 magazine, the IWMF 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 to US residents for all gift levels. 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: If you are not a resident of the US, we welcome you to become a member of the IWMF and receive all the services provided by us. By joining the IWMF, we will send your contact information to the appropriate IWMF International Affiliate /Support Group (if one exists in the country you reside in), and we encourage you to join that Group so that you may also receive services provided locally. The IWMF International Affiliates can be found here. The list of International Support Groups can be found here.
