    In the UK we are so fortunate that the NHS funds myelofibrosis. However, it was also a system that let my daughter, Jennifer down. This was due to missing opportunities to investigate her health problems further, and possibly diagnose her sooner. Diagnosed at 22, she passed away at just 22. At least we did not have to worry about cost of care. Once diagnosed, she did get the best available treatment, medical wise, but her care was not holistic.
