Black Lives Matter

The nation has been roiled by a movement that recognizes how long overdue we are in dealing with inequality on the basis of race. Rather than stay silent because our mission is focused on supporting people living with a myeloproliferative neoplasm, we realized that this IS our lane. We know that there are systemic biases on the basis of race that are part of our culture, which includes medical, nonprofit and government agencies. MPN Research Foundation's commitment is to serving and supporting all those living with an MPN as well as the medical and research community. We commit to listening to their experiences and to do our part to end racial biases where we can. We say that Black Lives Matter.
