Participate in Patient Registries

Participate in Patient Registries

Patient registries provide researchers with the opportunity to analyze the data that is generated and collected over a patient’s lifetime.  The true analytical value of such registries can only be achieved when large numbers of participants provide access to their data.

The IWMF evaluates requests for participants among the WM patient/caregiver population to ensure that the registry is viable, and that proper security and privacy precautions are taken. 

Participate in Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are a final and crucial step on the path to developing better treatments for patients. They offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future. The decision to participate in a clinical trial should be a thoughtful process in which patients carefully evaluate many aspects of the clinical trial option.



When you shop at the WM storefront a percentage of your purchases help fund the Member Services and Research provided by the IWMF…and at no added cost to you!




In response to IWMF members who have indicated an interest in advocacy work, the IWMF established a new US advocacy plan in 2017. Through this plan, we recommend that our US members advocate and respond to US Congressional bills of particular concern to them, the WM patient community, and the IWMF. These could include, among others, bills dealing with insurance coverage of cancer therapy in all forms – intravenous, injectable, or oral; acceleration of drug approval for new therapies; and oral parity under Medicare for all forms of cancer therapy.
