Hello everyone out there in the MPN community. I would just like to introduce myself. My name is Mary, I am nearly 61 and have been recently diagnosed with Essential Thrombocythemia -Jak2 positive. I have been on aspirin for the last three months awaiting diagnosis, and after seeing hematologist have been prescribed hydroxyeura (hope I've spelt that right). So far I have taken the news very well - but I'm sure that there will be day's when I'll appreciate your support. May I thank yoiu in advance for that.
