Publications about WM from IWMF Partners

NCCN Guidelines for Patients with WM, 2017. A recent addition to the NCCN’s extensive series of patients’ guides for a variety of cancers, has been endorsed by the IWMF and has been adopted as a supplement to the IWMF’s library of booklets, Treatment Guides and Fact Sheets. WM patients and caregivers are certain to find this new booklet to be a relevant and informative resource that will help people living with WM talk to their physicians about the best treatment options for their disease.

IWMF Information Packets (Info Paks) For Patients and Caregivers

Information Packets (Info Pak) are intended for newly diagnosed patients and their caregivers. IWMF volunteers and WM researchers work together to develop booklets, pamphlets, and information packets that provide the newly diagnosed patient and their caregivers with up-to-date, easy to understand information regarding Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, how to treat it, and how to live with it. Info Paks are provided for immediate download.
