MPN Voice is a charity which relies on donations to support forums, research and patient support activities. We have decided to ask for a donation for attendees to put towards the running costs of a forum.  A suggested donation would be £10, at present this would be payable on the day.

Programme - The programme will include talks from the haematology teams at the Countess of Chester Hospital, The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, Glan Clywd Hospital, and MPN patients.  The programme will also include breakout groups for each MPN where patients can meet in smaller groups to discuss everyday challenges and swap tips and chat with other people who have the same MPN, there will also be a family and friends group, this gives your family and friends a chance to chat to others about how to help and support you and themselves.
