MPN Awareness Activities and Resources

CSC recognizes all patients and their loved ones who are living with MPNs on MPN Awareness Day, September 10, 2015 and throughout the month of September, Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

The Cancer Support Community has created a comprehensive toolkit for anyone wishing to host an MPN Awareness event at any time of the year. Download the Toolkit here.

For tips on implementing a program, download our guide here.

Join our community on social media and help us raise awareness by sharing a photo of you and your MPN experience with the hashtag #MPNAware2015. Follow and “tag” the Cancer Support Community on Twitter with @CancerSupportCm and post on our Facebook Page.
