Mark your calendars for Saturday, Sept. 12! We have an event you won’t want to miss. But first …

About Myeloproliferative Neoplasms

MPNs refers to a related group of disorders where parts of the blood don’t develop or function normally. They include:

  • Polycythemia vera, which results from an overproduction of red blood cells.

  • Essential thrombocythemia, which results from an overproduction of platelets.

  • Myelofibrosis, which results from scar tissue forming in the bone marrow and interfering with production of blood cells
