The 2016 MPNforum Sponsors

Over the years, MPNforum writers have written memorable stories.  Many of us know names like Jeremy Smith, Beatrice Larroque, Mary Cotter,  Ellen Jacquardt, Dr. Arch, Julie Libon, Harvey Gould, Zhen,  Marina Peed, Barbara Kurtz, Dr. Michael Goldstein, Bonnie Evans, and dozens more.  Behind them is a small support army of hematologists, designers, bench scientists,  editors,  proofreaders, photographers,  web gurus, even a syndicated cartoonist.

What nobody knows are the names of those MPNforum patients and caregivers who keep the lights burning and cover the costs of publication and patient advocacy.  Here is the 2016 cohort that quietly, without any hope of recognition or reward, funded MPNforum through the Small Donation Program. The list is only partial as a few prefer to remain anonymous.   It is through their generosity, and the selfless efforts of those who contribute creative and productive work, that our all volunteer, revolutionary MPN patient-project has been able to thrive for the past five years.  Together, we have been able to deliver well over 550,000 pages requested by patients, physicians and caregivers.

On behalf of all of us, thank you Charming Gardeners for your generosity and support.
