RECOGNIZE YOUR ROLE IN SUPPORTING MPN AWARENESS DAY

Author: Voices Of MPN

Because myeloproliferative neoplasms, or MPNs, such as polycythemia vera (PV), myelofibrosis (MF), and essential thrombocythemia (ET) are considered rare diseases, they are not widely known. That’s why it’s important to recognize the role you can play in helping to spread awareness of these rare, chronic blood cancers. Blood Cancer Awareness Month—and MPN Awareness Day—are two great opportunities to do just that!

September 14, 2017 is MPN Awareness Day

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month—and MPN Awareness Day is a part of that, occurring on the second Thursday of every September. This day of recognition focuses on encouraging those living with MPNs to use their voice to inspire others on their MPN journeys. It’s also a great opportunity for the MPN community to connect with one another by sharing personal stories and experiences, uniting patients with their MPN peers, and highlighting excellence in support for MPN patients and caregivers.

This year, you can play a role in both Blood Cancer Awareness Month and MPN Awareness Day by helping to spread awareness about MPNs. Here are some simple ways to get started:

  1. RECOGNIZE someone who has made a difference in MPN care by NOMINATING them as one of our 2017 MPN Heroes. Help celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the MPN Heroes program by recognizing a person or organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with MPNs. Nominations close on 9/14, so don’t miss your chance to honor your MPN Hero before it’s too late!
  2. LEARN MORE ABOUT MPNs by testing your knowledge and sharing your results.
  3. ASK AN MPN EXPERT during a Facebook live chat on 9/14 hosted by Incyte Corporation's Oncology Nurse Educator, Paul Larson, NP, AOCNP®. Learn more about MPNs and join the conversation.
  4. UPDATE YOUR TWITTER AND FACEBOOK PROFILE PICTURES in support of MPN Awareness Day by using Twibbon.

On MPN Awareness Day, be sure to raise your voice to help spread recognition of MPNs. Remember, you can play a key role in educating and empowering yourself—and others—in the growing MPN community.
