September 12, 2019, is the 7th Annual MPN Awareness Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness for myeloproliferative neoplasms. In honor of September 12, the MPN Advocates Network wants to hear from YOU: how you are reaching MPN patients, doctors or researchers in your country; how you are helping patients; how you are improving the LIVES of those living with the chronic, rare blood cancers, Polycythemia Vera, Essential Thrombocythemia and Myelofibrosis.

Send the MPN Advocates Network a short video, pictures or a description of what you’re doing (up to 500 words) before August 31st. The MPN Advocates Network’s Steering Committee of global MPN advocates will select ONE project to win $1,000 that will be given to your organization (if you are an accredited charity in your country) OR an MPN researcher of your choosing.

Send entries to and post them on social media, don’t forget to tag the Global MPN Advocates Network’s Facebook page and use the hashtags #HomeGrownHope4MPN and #MPNAwarenessDay.
