Barbara Reveals Hidden Struggles in a Film About the Impact of MPNs
Author: Voices of MPN
"Beyond Blue" is a short documentary film capturing Barbara’s story and the challenges she faced since her diagnosis with a rare, chronic blood cancer, polycythemia vera (PV), more than 20 years ago. The film reveals the hidden struggles that Barbara endures after her PV transformed into myelofibrosis (MF) and she underwent a stem cell transplantation. Through it all, Barbara has learned that you are more than your disease.
"Beyond Blue" is the first in a series of short documentary films directed by Cynthia Wade, an Academy Award®-winning filmmaker in the documentary short subject category, who has teamed up with Incyte to bring widespread attention to myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) and inspire those impacted to be their own health advocates.
