David Wallace, PV Reporter honored with 2016 Cure Magazine MPN Hero Award

Our Third Year attending the MPN Heroes Program

by David Wallace

For the past 4 years, Cure Magazine and Incyte Corporation have recognized leaders within the MPN community with the MPN Hero award.  The two categories include commitment to the individual or community.  I am honored to receive this award for “commitment to the broader MPN community” via my work on PV Reporter and the non profit organization I founded in 2015, MPN Cancer Connection.  I have participated in the event regularly.  First as a guest in 2014, as a member of the steering committee in 2015 and finally an award winner in 2016!

About David Wallace

Founder of PV Reporter, a resource for Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MPN) patients and caregivers. After being diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera (PV) in 2009, I utilized social media to connect with "informed patients" and develop a better understanding of emerging treatment options. My philosophy on patient care is straight forward - "educating the patient is essential, so the patient can guide their physician to meet his or her needs." PV Reporter is a comprehensive resource hub giving visitors vital tools to become "empowered patients."
