The last day of February (yesterday already in many parts of the world ) is designated Rare Disease Day . Almost 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera it's a parts of a group of diseases called Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs)
It's a type of blood cancer and it's rare, I don't actually know of anyone else with it outside of the dedicated social media groups that I belong too.
It's treatable, in that I keep it under control with daily medication and monthly blood tests, but it impacts my life and while I still continue to do everything I have always done, some days it's very tough to do that. So it impacts my life in many ways although I try to minimize it.
This day is to raise awareness for the need for funding more research into the causes and potential treatments of MPNs
