Blood Cancer Awareness Month-Patient Events

Our support means you are never alone.

In the fight against MPN Blood Cancer, Research & Support can make all the difference. The MPN Research Foundation is your partner. The innovative research we fund moves science forward. Support from family, friends and us means you are never alone. Together we can make a difference today, while finding better treatments and a cure for tomorrow. Patients and caregivers have options for support, both online and in person. 

The MPN Research Foundation will be rolling out a list of activities for MPN patients to participate in during the month of September and will be highlighting some of the important work currently being conducted in research, advocacy and education. These activities have been spearheaded not just by MPN Research Foundation, but by a wider group of organizations working together to help patients.
