Nominations are now open for the 2017 MPN Heroes® Recognition Program!

As we enter the fifth year of the Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) Heroes Recognition Program, we are excited to continue to build upon the success of the past four years! Since the launch of our program in 2013, MPN Heroes has raised awareness of MPNs and has helped recognize individuals and organizations in the MPN community who demonstrate excellence in care or exhibit leadership through the advancement of science. By recognizing these individuals and organizations in the MPN community, we have helped to raise awareness of not only MPNs, but also rare diseases in general; a fact which makes us very proud!

Raising awareness of rare diseases benefits all patients and families affected by rare diseases.

Our goal in recognizing MPN community Heroes is to highlight their excellent work, as well as increase their ability to serve the MPN community with the hope that more research, more support and more solutions will emerge. Over the past four years, 16 organizations supporting MPNs have increased their ability to continue their excellent work through charitable donations made in recognition of MPN Heroes efforts to increase awareness and education about MPNs.
