Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation of Canada (WMFC)

WMFC is the only Canadian Charitable organization dedicated solely to the Support, Education and Research for a Cure of WM.

Support Groups

A diagnosis of WM, a rare type of cancer may cause fear, anxiety or uncertainty.  Having a rare cancer may make you feel like you’re all alone.  But you’re not!

Latest Canadian WM Information

Got something relevant to Canadian WMers?  Provincial or national, we’d like to include it.  Send us a note!

  • An important new trial including relapsed and refractory WM patients is now available in Canada.  See our post for more information.

  • Wise advice for many of us in the WM community who are immunocompromised: it’s time to move to a better mask.  N95’s may be somewhat uncomfortable, but that snug fit gives some amount of confidence that one is better protected.

  • NCT04624906, the only Canadian trial specifically for WM patients, a.k.a. the BRAWM trial led by Dr. Berinstein, is now accepting patients not just at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, but also at the Vancouver General Hospital, the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, and The Ottawa Hospital.
