September provides the MPN community a unique opportunity to draw attention to polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and myelofibrosis by celebrating nationally recognized Blood Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). This September is especially important because two MPNRF board members have come forward and offered to MATCH all donations made this month dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000! This is an excellent opportunity for our community to raise a significant amount of money for MPN research on top of raising awareness for PV, ET, and MF patients. We’ve come a long way in our 20 years of funding MPN research, but we didn’t get here without the support of patients, their friends, and families. So, keep educating yourself and become a champion for MPN patients everywhere by supporting through donations, sharing your story, or participating in research. Only with your help will we one day see a cure.
Here’s How YOU Can Contribute During BCAM
Make a gift in honor of Blood Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM)and encourage your network of friends and family to do the same. All funds raised during BCAM will directly support MPN researchers who are looking for new treatments and a cure.
