Support Group Meeting, San Francisco, CA
A Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia Support Group meeting was held on February 3, 2007 in San Francisco, California. Penni Wisner and Cynthia Nicholson, the IWMF Support Group chapter leaders of the northern California areas, orchestrated this event.
The event was held at the Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel with joint collaboration of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A wonderful turnout of 100 + patients, friends, family and local medical experts came to listen and learn on the updates of research. Dr Treon was the guest speaker who spent an hour educating and updating the group on Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia- from current treatments to genetic analysis. Following, there was an hour question & answer period with him.
