Town Talk

Friona Resident Sandra Randall is a blood cancer patient and she would like us to know how important this month is. September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Sandra words of wisdom are “don’t judge people on how they look because you don’t know of how they feel inside”. Sandra would like to spread the word about Myeloproliferative Neoplams (MPN) and to remind patients and caregivers that they are not alone. During the month of September, the MPN is raising money to fund on the latest research and will be having educational information to share. MPN Awareness Day is on Friday, September 14. Your donations will be appreciated.

*MPN research foundation.
