For people living with a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN), such as polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), or myelofibrosis (MF), it is not uncommon to sometimes feel alone on the MPN journey. That’s because MPNs are considered rare diseases. Connecting with an MPN peer to share information, insights, and experiences may help reinforce that you’re part of a greater community—and that you’re not alone on your journey. 

Hear from Matt and Josh, two members of the MPN Community who recently had the opportunity to connect with each other through CHAMPN Connections, a peer-to-peer program that provides MPN patients and caregivers with the opportunity to connect one-on-one with a peer who shares a similar experience.

Listen as these two individuals connect for the first time and have a conversation about their individual PV journeys, from initial diagnosis and beyond. Find out what they had in common—and how they were able to inform, inspire, and empower each other.

Learn how to connect one-on-one with a member of the MPN community by registering for CHAMPN Connections at voicesofmpn.com/connections.
