Testimonials

  • Portriat Bob Perry
    Professional support in raising awareness and educating
    Karger approached me to do a video interview about living with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia and my role as a Patient Support Manager at the WMUK.
    The collaboration was very professional, with excellent communication and planning beforehand that helped me to feel well prepared for the interview. I am very pleased with the end result and we received positive feedback.
    This video contributes to our goals to raise awareness of the condition and to educate people who have been diagnosed with it. It gives people an opportunity to learn from somebody who lives with the condition and knows what to expect, and I would definitely recommend this kind of collaboration to others.

    Bob Perry, Patient Support Manager, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia UK (WMUK)
