  • Have put posters in Maggie and also done posters for Angela to put in hematology and taking some to my doctor's too

  • Thanks Maz, I am pricing up train tickets and hope to come!

  • Hi Malachy, great, hope you can make it. Maz

  • Hurrah I am coming, it's the first one I can make :)

  • Hurrah indeed, it will be great to see you, Maz

  • Is this open to just patients, I am my dad's advocate and he has just been diagnosed with MF, I would be interested- he is under Heartlands Care and I am sure my dad would like to meet fellow patients?

  • Hi MichyB, no not just patients, as I said in the post, patients are welcome to bring family and friends with them as we know it really does help for our family and friends to learn about MPNs and to hear the speakers, we welcome anyone to come along to all our forums to learn about MPNs, so even if you or anyone else who doesn't actually have a MPN wanted to come to a forum to learn more then that would be absolutely ok with us. If you would like to register please email me at info@mpnvoice.org.uk. If there is anything else you would like to know about forums, or anything else please ask. Best wishes, Maz.
