A DECADE OF FOSTERING COMMUNITY AND CONNECTIONS
Before the initiative started in 2013, there were few occasions to honor those giving support to people affected by MPNs such as polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and myelofibrosis (MF).
That changed when Incyte Corporation and CURE magazine partnered to sponsor the MPN Heroes Recognition Program. The program’s driving force has been to create more opportunities for people with MPNs to be heard and supported so more solutions and treatment options can emerge.
Since 2013, the program has had a positive effect on the MPN community. Patients and caregivers have become inspirations. Healthcare Professionals are recognized for their compassionate patient care. Researchers are applauded for advancing the science of MPNs. Patient Advocates are highlighted for their work to help patients learn about their disease. MPN organizations are spotlighted for their unwavering support for those living with MPNs.
