Dr. Ruben Mesa, from the MPN Education Foundation, discusses various treatment options for myeloproliferative neoplasms, and highlights how advances in research can help patients with the disease and beyond.
Individuals living with myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) often face a markedly different experience compared to those patients with other types of blood cancer. Unfortunately, there tends to be less known about this population due to its smaller size. But tools like the recently published “Blood Cancer in America” 2020 survey aim to help highlight the disparities faced by the MPN community and give a voice to those who may feel unheard.
Jeffrey Glen Jones – an American illustrator who started doing comic books about 25 years ago – is using his creative talents to illustrate the stories of those impacted by MPNs, as part of a campaign called Rare Reflections: MPNs Unmasked.
