The Disease

Myelofibrosis is an incurable cancer, belonging to a class of cancers called MPNs - Myeloproliferative NeoPlasms. It is the worst of the group; other MPNs progress to it, and sometimes patients develop it without having developed other MPNs

The Foundation

The MPN Research Foundation is dedicated to education, healing, and research involving only MPNs. It is an organization for patients, founded by patients, and patients help the organization in various ways, including fund-raising drives.


Bob Wanamaker & Near Death Productions

Bob was diagnosed with myelofibrosis in August 2015 when he collapsed in the emergency room, and has been hospitalized twice with life threatening complications. This drive is his way of helping others with the disease.
