Celebrate Your MPN Heroes!

The MPN Heroes® Recognition Program celebrates individuals and organizations committed to improving the lives of people impacted by the rare, chronic blood cancers called myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). The program was created in 2013 to foster the spirit of community. It focuses on the three "classical" MPNs—polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and myelofibrosis (MF).

The initiative honors patients, Healthcare Professionals, caregivers, advocates, and organizations. As MPN Heroes, they are recognized for their extraordinary efforts to bring understanding, compassion, and strength to the MPN community.

The MPN Heroes Recognition Program is sponsored by Incyte Corporation and CURE magazine. The goal of the program is to create as many opportunities as possible for people with MPNs to be heard and supported, so more solutions and treatment options will emerge.

Reflecting on 10 Years of MPN Heroes

The MPN Heroes celebrated the tenth anniversary of the MPN Heroes Program in 2022. Take a look back to see 10 years of MPN Heroes talk about what the program means to them.

Recognize the MPN Heroes in Your Life

You may already have met a real MPN Hero if you or a loved one is affected by PV, ET, or MF. An MPN Hero can be:

  • A patient whose strength has inspired you
  • A caregiver who has consistently offered you support and reassurance
  • A Healthcare Professional who is an exceptionally committed partner in working with you to manage your MPN
  • An organization or advocacy group dedicated to improving MPN care and support

Nominate the MPN Hero in Your Life

If an individual or organization routinely goes “above and beyond” to make a difference for someone living with an MPN, nominate them as your MPN Hero. Honoring their efforts can show your appreciation for what they do to make a difference in MPN care.
