Canadian MPN Network

We’re all about helping Canadians who want to learn about or who are impacted by the different blood disorders know together as Myeloproliferative Neoplasms, or MPNs.

What are MPNs?

Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) is the name given to a group of conditions sometimes referred to as blood cancers.

MPNs originate in the bone marrow – the soft tissue in the middle of the bones where blood cells are made. In a healthy person, bone marrow makes blood stem cells that, in time, develop into mature blood cells – red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets.

About the

Canadian MPN Network

The Canadian MPN Network was founded in 2014. Our purpose as an organization is to connect and help Canadians from coast to coast to coast who are dealing the challenges of living with a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) disorder.
