WMUK oversee a total of 18 virtual support groups, that are there to provide emotional and community support to both patients and their families/friends.
The support groups cover a large area of the UK, as well as ones which are specific to Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia related conditions and specific cohorts of people such as the peripheral neuropathy group or the Mums with WM group.
It doesn't matter what stage of you and your WM are in - the support groups have people from newly diagnosed, those on active monitoring, and people on treatment or in clinical trials. They really are for everyone.
The support group meetings are held virtually over Zoom and many of them also use WhatsApp as a form of continued support and communication. Some support groups are now meeting in person in small, informal gatherings.
Please note: WMUK provides support and assistance to local groups, but they are volunteer led groups and we cannot take responsibility for their activities, including information and advice they may give, and any other services they may provide.

One of WMUK’s aims within 2023, is to ensure that we have a robust patient support pathway that recognises and addresses both the clinical and holistic needs of WM patients and their families/friends.
