Nominate your Hero today

Since 2013, the MPN Heroes Recognition Program has recognized the people and organizations that have dedicated themselves to improving the lives of people with MPNs. The program focuses on the three “classical” MPNs—or what are known as Philadelphia chromosome–negative MPNs.

2021 marks the ninth anniversary of the MPN Heroes Recognition Program, sponsored by Incyte Corporation and CURE magazine. Our goal is to create as many opportunities as possible for people with MPNs to be heard and to be supported, so more solutions and treatment options will emerge.

Created in the spirit of fostering community, the program recognizes patients, Healthcare Professionals, caregivers, advocates, and organizations that contribute to bringing understanding, compassion, and strength to the MPN community.  Nominate your hero today!
