On SUNDAY JUNE 14th, 2020 from 7AM, the MPN-MATE RESEARCH FOUNDATION in collaboration with the Parramatta Cycling Club, and the Parramatta Park Trust, are holding a small community event led by a group of self-advocating ‘blood cancer patients’ who have started their own Research Foundation, (An Australian ‘Not-For-Profit’ Health Promotion Charity), in order for critical research to be undertaken here in Australia where there are possibly as many as 30,000 Australians affected by one of these rare blood cancers known as: Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs). Naturally, we are only able to undertake these fundraising efforts through the ongoing support of people like you and all of our generous participating Sponsors. With your assistance we will make an important difference for all MPN afflicted Australians and their Quality of Life (QoL). Thank you all so much…
