    I was so sorry to hear Dr Ruben Mesa has been unwell but glad to hear he received rapid treatment with insertion of a stent. I hope he has time to rest and recover before he resumes his busy schedule caring for and treating MPN patients around the world. We in the MPN community are so lucky to have such a caring, compassionate, brilliant doctor and researcher advocating for us. Sending prayers and best wishes for his speedy recovery.
