Take on the 20 for 20 Challenge for WMUK!

We've teamed up with 19 other rare and less common cancer charities in the 20 for 20 Challenge. Take on 20 challenges in 20 days this autumn and raise funds for WMUK to help us help others during this challenging time. Cancer doesn't stop for COVID, and neither do we.
Ellie from Berkshire

Ellie's story

“The day-to-day challenges of living with a rare cancer that no-one seems to have heard of, let alone pronounce, has had an overwhelming effect on our lives.”

We’re really grateful to Ellie for sharing her thoughts and feelings since being diagnosed with WM earlier this year.
Flu jab

Should I have the flu (influenza) jab, and is it safe?

Vaccination against seasonal flu offers Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia (WM) patients, who often have weakened immune systems, some protection against the most common strains of flu. The flu vaccine is therefore recommended in all and preferably also family members of WM patients to keep the flu levels low in the community.
Are you currently taking zanubrutinib?

Are you currently taking zanubrutinib?

We are very keen to hear from any WM patients who are currently taking zanubrutinib in the UK. If you would be prepared to share your experiences to inform our work on a forthcoming NICE appraisal, please do get in touch.
