The 6th Biennial Joyce Niblack Memorial Conference on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms kicked off today with a great luncheon at Alchemy restaurant in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Bob Niblack ordered perfect weather so we could enjoy an outdoor buffet and meet others in the journey with MPNs.
There are many smiling faces; this has to be the friendliest group of blood cancer patients!
It is so refreshing to meet others who "don't look sick" on the outside yet have so much going on in the bloodstream.
I am attending the conference with my mom, Eileen, and together we'll be recording notes of the presentations for the next two days. I'll then post them and share with others who cannot be here. They will also be helpful for later reference. Photos will come when I get them uploaded.
Stay tuned for the latest in MPN news brought to you by the CMPD Education Foundation & Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale.
