International Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia Foundation

International Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia Foundation

The International Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF) is a patient-founded and volunteer-led nonprofit organization dedicated to a simple but compelling vision: Support and educate everyone affected by Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM) while advancing the search for a cure. 

To accomplish this vision, the IWMF offers several invaluable benefits: 

  • Information for patients and caregivers written in easy-to-understand language. 
  • Education to help patients and caregivers learn about WM.  Publications are available in multiple languages and our website reaches global patients in over 100 languages.
  • On-going updates about the IWMF community at and through the quarterly IWMF Torch magazine and NEWS releases
  • Peer support from a worldwide network of patient groups, social media and other online discussion forums.
  • Research funding directed to better treatments and the search for a cure.  Since 1999, the IWMF has funded over $24 million in global WM research
