Patient Support Groups

In the fight against blood cancer, research and support can make all the difference while we fight to find better treatments and a cure. While we are waiting you need a partner to get you through. MPN Research Foundation is there for you, not only funding research that is moving the science forward, but also connecting you to information and other people who are going through this same experience.

Please take a moment to get the support you need.

In-person MPN patient support groups are opportunities which meet face to face to learn and network with other patients and caregivers. We have compiled a list of inperson patient support groups below. If you don't see one in your area, contact Lexi at lmoore@mpnrf.org or 312.683.7247

Peer to Peer Support – Imerman’s Angels offers peer-to-peer support from people who have gone through this already – both patients and caregivers. If you’re in need of support or if you’re ready to mentor someone else, click here to get support now.
