So…I know I said my next blog was going to be about fatigue…Sorry, but it’s not going to happen. Not right now at least. Instead I’d like to discuss something about which I am really excited!
Last summer I was lucky enough to go to the Chicagoland Patient Support Group meeting. It was extremely informative, and I had a great time meeting so many other patients! It was a wonderful feeling being in a room full of people who understood how I felt, and who had experienced the same things as me. I am excited to say that this summer I will be attending another MPN event in Chicago.
The MPN Research Foundation and Patient Power are Hosting an event on June 7th. Living Well with MPNs. The event will include review of the latest research, information on planning treatment, and one of the things I’m most excited about is the opportunity to meet other patients. Presenting at the event will be Dr. Brady Stein of Northwestern, and Dr. Alison Moliterno of Johns Hopkins.
I can’t wait for the event! I plan to try to video some of the event (if that is allowed, of course). I will also do a review/recap of the meeting like I did last summer.
Are any of you going to be there? I hope so! I’d love to meet some more fellow-MPNers 🙂 Hope to see you there!
As always, you are your own best advocate. If you do not take care of yourself, who will?
Until next time,
