CSC released its latest booklet in the Frankly Speaking About Cancer Series: Spotlight on Myelofibrosis
. The launch of the booklet coincided with Myelofibrosis Awareness Day 2012 on September 20th.
Supported by a grant from the Incyte Corporation and in partnership with The Leukemia &Lymphoma Society, the MPN Research Foundation and the MPN Education Foundation this booklet provides much needed information about this rare and often misunderstood form of blood cancer.
The booklet has information on how to be an active participant in one’s health care team, and coping with the emotional impact of a diagnosis of Myelofibrosis. Also included is information about the diagnosis and treatment, side effect management and helpful resources.
“CSC has done a fantastic job with this book! It is a much needed resource for people with MF. This would have been a huge help to me when I was originally diagnosed. Even now, there is information I will be able to use,” said one patient reviewer.
