The stories below were contributed by Jennifer Acker, Content Writer for MPN Research Foundation. A longtime friend of the Foundation, Jennifer's most recent project has been focused on finding and sharing inspirational stories of MPN patients from around the world. Jennifer is a graduate of Moravian College where she earned a BA in English and Secondary Education and The University of New Hampshire where she received a Master’s in Teaching English. She is also a registered yoga teacher and is currently designing yoga clinics for cancer patients in Eastern Pennsylvania. Although a rare diagnosis, no one should ever feel alone in the fight against MPNs. Jennifer believes we can all learn and find inspiration from one another’s journeys, one story at a time.
