The MPN Research Foundation is the organization which will benefit from the raffle. The foundation was started in 1999 in Chicago; to date, they have raised over 10M USD for institution independent research. This is certainly impressive; and I don't mean to downplay it with what follows.
Even more impressive is the direct help they provide to people like me, the patients who are suffering. They provide a variety of educational services, ranging from a mailing list to a cornucopia of YouTube videos - and the information ranges from the introductory, easy to understand, to more esoteric topics. They work with "rock star" MPN Specialists, who are available to consult with patients like me; this can often fill the gap created by a lack of education most hematologists receive on MPNs. It gives us, the patients, a valuable resource.
