Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare, slow-growing cancer of the lymphatic system. Cancers of the lymphatic system are called lymphomas. WM is a type of lymphoma called non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is not a single disease; it refers to a group of different lymphomas that start in the lymphocytes (white blood cells). WM affects a specific type of white blood cell, called a B-lymphocyte or B-cell for short.

Yes! The IWMF Support Groups are the perfect place to talk with other people affected by WM, including patients, family members and caregivers. The groups provide mutual support and offer the opportunity to discuss concerns with others who share experiences with each other. This sharing strengthens the family bond and enhances everyone’s ability to cope with WM. Not only are Support Groups a good source of information about WM from others who are living with the disease…but you’ll make new friends! More information about support groups can be found here. https://iwmf.com/us-and-international-support-groups/
