Be part of an international effort to cure Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia (WM)

With your help, WMozzies  is looking to raise  $150,000 over the next 2 years in support of the  Research Strategy .

With thanks to an incredible supporter, the first $40,000 in donations will be dollar matched up until 30 June 2020. By donating today, your gift will have a twice the impact.

Be part of the next WM breakthrough and ensure people living with WM all around the world are given the best possible chance at curing our WM disease.

Help ensure people living with WM are not left behind

WM receives lower levels of research funding than many other forms of blood cancer and there are fewer opportunities for patients to access clinical trials. Therefore, investment in research is desperately needed to understand the drivers of WM, and to develop more targeted and effective therapies for people living with WM. The international WM community has come together to co-fund exciting research through the IWMF-LLS Strategic Research Roadmap Initiative.

 

 

IWMF-LLS Strategic Research Roadmap Initiative

The International Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF) and The Leukaemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS)  have developed the  IWMF-LLS Strategic Research Roadmap Initiative to help further knowledge in four key domains of WM research:

  • Genomics and epigenomics
  • Signalling
  • Immunology/immunotherapy
  • Bone marrow/tumour microenvironment

This research is to better understand the biology of WM, with the goals of improving quality of life for WM patients, discovering new treatments, and ultimately, finding a cure.  Read more at Strategic Research Roadmap.

Under the Roadmap Initiative, the IWMF awards Roadmap grants for 2-4 new research proposals each year, depending on funding availability.

All proposals from around the world including Australia are reviewed by an independent committee composed of selected members of the IWMF Scientific Advisory Committee and other experts in the field.

 

On behalf of the Waldenström’s community I ask for your help to support this vital initiative by making a tax-deductible donation to the Leukaemia Foundation before 30 June. You can make your gift online at DONATE here.

We are a small, but passionate group of people who I believe can make this happen through our collective efforts. No gift is too big or too small. I encourage you to share this donation request with your relatives, friends, and work colleagues.

Each gift will ensure that the pursuit for more effective, less toxic, and curative therapies for WM continues. More than ever these researchers need our support to keep going, as charities and research institutions face financial uncertainty and challenges.

Through this crisis, I have found hope and comfort from seeing the many ways people are uniting and looking out for each other. Thank you for being part of our community.
