The Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation of Canada would like to extend a sincere thank you to Bert Visheau, a Board of Director member since 2003, for his dedication and support to the WMFC. Bert has stepped down after volunteering for 16 years to focus on his family. We wish him all the best and look forward to seeing him at our support group meetings in the future. Bert is a great resource offering encouragement, extensive knowledge of WM and compassion to all our members.
The WMFC is also very pleased to announce the appointment of Raffaela Mercurio and Ian Roberts as our new Directors on the Board. We welcome Raffaela and Ian and look forward to working with them bringing new ideas and their vision for the future of the WMFC.
We also welcome Lisa Skoric and Lynn Rankine as Statutory Members representing our members at large.
The WMFC is an all-volunteer foundation working tirelessly on behalf of all our members across Canada and we are very grateful to Raffaela, Ian, Lisa and Lynn for stepping forward to volunteer.
There are still openings for Directors or Statutory members and we encourage everyone to consider becoming a part of a very dedicated group bringing awareness to this rare disease. Any time you can give will make a positive impact for so many. You can make a difference and pay it forward by joining our team. To learn more on how you can participate please contact: Arlene Hinchcliffe, firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-337-2450.
