A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM HIKEMF:

To all of our supporters,

We, at HikeMF, hope you are all safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. 

This year, we are holding a physically distanced HikeMF on the weekend of May 30 & 31.  Take a hike, walk, run or bike, in your own neighborhood. Take some fun photos and share them using #HikeMF or send them to HikeMF@aol.com. We will post a video with all of your wonderful photos. Don't forget to wear your HikeMF shirt, if you have one! Thank you for helping HikeMF continue this year!

To those who have already generously donated, or to those who would like to donate, please be assured that 100% of your gift will go directly to the MPN Research Foundation to support research for a cure for MPN’s. 

Thank you again for the constant support you have given us over the past 5 years. HikeMF will be back bigger and better in 2021!

With heartfelt thanks we wish you all a safe and healthy outlook ahead!

THE STORY


HikeMF is an organization that was founded in 2014 to raise funds for research into Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs).  We sponsored our first hike in 2015. Our generous donors and hikers have donated more than $215,000.

All donations made to HikeMF will be for the benefit of the MPN Research Foundation and directed to the Robert Rosen Memorial Fund.

THERE IS NO CURE!

MPNs are a group of rare blood cancers that include Essential Thrombocythemia (ET), Polycythemia Vera (PV) and Myelofibrosis (MF). There are limited research funds for MPNs. HikeMF was formed to be proactive and support organizations and researchers in their quest for a cure and viable treatments for MPNs.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE FIND A CURE!

There are many inspirational people living with MPNs. Some are trailblazers who have entered a drug trial with the hope that it will be the cure or treatment desperately needed, some are out of hope and saying their goodbyes and some are in the watch and wait stage, with no treatments or trials available. All are hoping for a cure!

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

This quote from fellow MPN patient, Mary Cotter, sums up living with an MPN.

“I know how variable and unpredictable this road can be. Hiking is a great metaphor for our MPN journey. Some trails are long wide and indolent, while others are short and rocky. Our MPN ‘weather’ can be sunny and glorious but turn treacherous without warning.”

It was because of this uncertainty and no cure on the horizon that HikeMF was formed.  We hike to advance research, we hike in support of those living with an MPN and we hike in memory of those who are no longer with us. We at HikeMF will continue hiking until a cure is found.

DON’T DELAY….DONATE TODAY!

All donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your support in helping to advance MPN research.

With much appreciation and many thanks!
