In February, the MPD Foundation launched its first fundraising initiative, Feel the Need – Feed the Cure. All proceeds went to the MPD Foundation for research aimed at finding a cure and better treatment options for polycythemia vera, myelofibrosis and essential thrombocythemia.
In response to many people in the MPD community wishing to host an event in a month other than February, the Foundation has made Feel the Need – Feed the Cure an ongoing fundraising option. As well as contributing towards MPD research, these events generate interest and awareness about MPDs throughout the country.
For more information, or for hosts who would like their event featured on MPNResearchFoundation.org, contact Ann Brazeau at abrazeau@MPNResearchFoundation.org. To read more about past Feel the Need – Feed the Cure events click here.
