When Ruth Gunson was diagnosed with ET in 2015, her daughter, best friend, and caregiver, Ina, was right by her side. Through the fear of the unknown and the fatigue of MPN symptoms, Ruth and Ina have brought each other support, love, laughter and perhaps most importantly, hope.
“I hope by spreading awareness more funding is generated so rare blood cancers can receive more funding and a larger budget that is deserved. I hope more people are open to participating in clinical trials which will open up the platform for more research and studies. I hope by sharing my story, other caregivers feel less isolated. You don’t know what someone is going through until you have a conversation. I hope others have just as much hope in their hearts as I do.” Ina Gunson.
YOU are the key that will open the doors to the next advances in MPN research so please consider donating to MPNRF today! Every gift contributed will bring us closer to the goal that we are all hoping for: a cure for MPNs.
