Diagnosed with Chronic Myeloproliferative

I was diagnosed about two years ago with Chronic Myeloproliferative. I take 25mg of Jakafi twice a day. I have an older sister who has the same. She's had blood cancer for several years. I went through a few doctors who just dismissed my symptoms as in my mind. Finally, my sister had me go to a doctor who discovered her cancer and after looking through tests, including a bone marrow biopsy, he knew right away what was happening.
