The MPN Research Foundation has a single goal: to stimulate original research in pursuit of new treatments — and eventually a cure — for polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia and myelofibrosis, known collectively as myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN).
The National CML Society was created by and for patients and their families in order to provide a centralized hub of information for this rare form of leukemia.
Founded in 2007 as Carolyn’s Hope, this organization quickly spread beyond the confines of a local work to address the real concerns faced by the CML community nationwide. In December 2009, the organization became The National CML Society (NCMLS), serving the needs of the CML community in the United States and its Territories.
The Empowered Patient Coalition is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization created by patient advocates devoted to helping the public improve the quality and the safety of their healthcare. The coalition feels strongly that the first crucial steps in both patient empowerment and patient safety efforts are information and education. The public is increasingly aware that they must assume a greater role in health care issues but they need tools, strategies and support to assist them in becoming informed and engaged medical consumers who are able to make a positive impact on health care safety.
PV Reporter was created to fill a gap in the MPN patient community providing “easy access” to pertinent information on Polycythemia Vera (PV), Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) and Myelofibrosis (MF). These disorders are Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs), a closely related group of blood cancers where the bone marrow cells that produce the body’s blood cells function and develop abnormally. If you are a newly diagnosed patient or researching MPNs, make PV Reporter your starting point. While many existing MPN websites provide excellent content, they tend to be internally focused or lack internal or external search capabilities. PV Reporter solves that problem with MPN Search – retrieving exactly the information you are looking for!
Stupid Cancer, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is the dominant healthcare brand for millions affected by young adult cancer.
Our innovative and award-winning services serve as a bullhorn to propel the young adult cancer movement forward and our charter is to ensure that no one affected by young adult cancer go unaware of the age-appropriate support resources they are entitled to so they can get busy living.
Seven times more common than all pediatric cancers combined, young adult cancer (age 15-39) is largely unknown in the war on cancer with 72,000 new diagnoses each year. That’s one every eight minutes. This is not OK! This neglected group—now millions strong—has limited resources, inadequate support, and, more importantly, a lack of awareness and understanding from the community around them.
