Next MPN Ontario Support Meeting – Saturday November 4th.

Our next MPN Ontario meeting is on Saturday, November 4th, 9:30 am to Noon at the Wellwood Centre in Hamilton, Ontario.

The theme of this meeting is “Sharing and Learning From Each Other” and the format will be a bit different than recent meetings. Instead of a speaker, we giving new and “veteran” MPN patients the opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics related to their disorders in an informal setting. Topics will include: controlling MPN symptoms, medications and their side effects, quality-of-life issues, helpful techniques to manage an MPN, and preparing for hematologist appointments.

Group discussions offer an excellent opportunity to connect with other MPN patients and their care partners. Please bring your questions, concerns, and suggestions to share with your fellow MPN folks.

Please contact John Clark at mpnontario@gmail.com to register for this meeting,learn more about our support group, or if you wish to be added to our contact list. We do not share contact information with anyone without your permission. Both patients and their loved ones are welcome at all meetings.

The MPN Ontario Patient Support Group was formed in 2011 to fill a need for MPN patients to meet, share experiences and obtain actual, helpful information about their diagnosis. We hold three face-to-face meetings a year in Hamilton, Ontario and keep our members informed throughout the year by email. Meetings typically have 35-50 people in attendance.
