THE STORY:

I am super passionate about Endurance Event and exploring my limits but I am even more passionate about doing my part to give back. This passion has driven me to become an avid supporter of the MPN Foundation.

The reason that I have choosen the MPN Research Foundation is that my mother, Vivienne Wardian has Polycythemia Vera, 

Polycythemia (say: "polly-sigh-thee-me-ah") vera (PV) is a disease in which your body makes too many red blood cells.

Basically, her body is too good a making red blood cells, which sounds good but causes a lot of problems.

So that leads me to wanting to help and I think this is possible through the "MPN Reasearch Foundation".

The primary mission of the MPN Research Foundation is to stimulate original research in pursuit of new treatments—and eventually a cure—for myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN’s). In addition, the MPN Research Foundation promotes collaboration in the scientific community to accelerate research, and serves as a powerful patient advocacy group for patients and their families.

Founded by patients, for patients, terms on every research grant are negotiated to maximize the dollars invested in actual research, with approximately 80% of the funds raised channeled directly into supporting myeloproliferative neoplasm research. The Foundation’s esteemed Scientific Advisory Board utilizes a rigorous selection process to ensure donations are allocated to the most innovative research projects. The scientific advisory board includes highly regarded physicians from Scripps, University of Utah, BC Cancer Research Center and Weill Cornell.

You can show your support by clicking the DONATE button. You can go one step further and click the JOIN THE TEAM button to become a fundraiser too. If you join my team you will have a project page just like mine that you can edit and share will all of your family and friends.

 

Just think of the impact we could have if we donate and then ask 10 of our friends to donate too. That’s the goal.

 

Thank you so much for your support.

 

Cheers,

Michael Wardian
