April Patient Events

Our partner on the MF Challenge, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, is hosting a few events in April aimed at educating the people living with blood cancer: 

Patient in and around Sioux Falls, SD are invited to attend a seminar on Myelofibrosis. Dr. Ahmed Galal will be speaking about managing and living with Myelofibrosis. More information can be found on their flyer located here. 

For Illinois, patients are invited to attend the Illinois Blood Cancer Conference taking place on April 20th in Oakbrook. There will be presentations on latest treatments and research as well as breakout sessions covering long term survival and nutrition. This free conference covers blood cancers in general, but could be of interest to MPN patients and their caregivers. 

Finally, several patient support groups are meeting in April including Houston, TX,  Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA, and Los Angeles, CA.
