September 12, 2013 is MPN Awareness Day. This show is all about this rare group of blood cancers—whose full name is Myeloproliferative Neoplasms.
Being a rare cancer, understanding an MPN diagnosis and its treatment options can be confusing. We’ve invited a couple of guests to help us better understand this condition and how to live well with it. Joining us is Dr. John Mascarenhas, an assistant professor in Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and an expert on MPN. Also here with us is Melissa Wright, the Program Director at one of the Cancer Support Community’s affiliates, Gilda’s Club Quad Cities, in Davenport, Iowa.
