How will I help?
Every penny you raise by joining Walk for Waldenstrom’s will go towards funding the brand new WMUK Support Line, ensuring people affected by WM have somewhere to turn.
In September 2022, WMUK plans to launch the UK’s first ever WM-specific support line. The WMUK Support Line will be a vital service for people affected by Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinaemia, their families and friends. Staffed by a WM healthcare professional, it will be open to anyone who needs expert information, advice, or simply a listening ear.
Vicky Towers, a WM patient, says, “The WMUK Support Line would not just empower me but give me hope in my darkest moments, and I’m sure it would do the same for so many other patients and their families. That’s why I’m walking for Waldenstrom’s.”
By joining together with friends, family and the WM community, you’ll be able to make the WMUK Support Line a reality, and ensure everyone with WM has somewhere to turn to find answers, reassurance and hope.
Right now, we don’t have the funds to get this service up and running. But by helping us raise £17,000 before the 17 April, you’ll be ensuring that we can launch the Support Line in September 2022.
