Science & Medicine

A common road.


With a few different twists and turns, we travel  down a common road.

We have a rare blood disorder in common.  And, in common,  we need to understand our treatment options, to connect with one another’s experiences. Across our support groups, Facebook pages, MPNforum, MPN-NET, MPD Chat, PV Reporter, MPD Support, MPN Voice we care for each other.

From the beginning, MPNforum was always more of a community than a newspaper. It’s a way to link us together, to show each other what we look like, a way include us all in the big international medical meetings we could never get to on our own. MPNforum takes us inside the labs producing scientific findings,  inside the MPN Research Foundation grant review process, inside our personal  trials and procedures, sharing our achievements…and our sorrows.

 A huge MPNforum community of hematologists, scientists, patients and caregivers contributes stories and photos. Some contribute time to publish, to maintain lists, to support research projects. Some also contribute small donations to keep the lights on and pay operating costs.

MPNforum is a collective, voluntary enterprise. No one gets paid to do the MPNforum work.

This is the Small Donation Program. We ask you for supporting gifts from $5 to a maximum of $100. It’s entirely up to you. You will receive no tax benefit, no public listing of your name. Just a thank you note…and the knowledge that you’ve done your share.

On this road, there are drivers. And there are the driven.  For those who must be driven, please be a driver. Take the wheel. Donate. And thank you!
