Andi Malitz

Patient Advocate

Andi Malitz was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia (ET) at the age of 46.  During an annual checkup, it was discovered that her platelet count was close to 800,000. While Andi was symptomatic, she wrote it off as a side effect of a surgery she had close to the same time as being diagnosed. After seeing the same hematologist for the first 11 years of her diagnosis and still not feeling her disease was under control, experiencing extreme fatigue, mouth sores and anemia, Andi attended a Patient Power MPN town meeting in Chicago.  At that point, she realized she needed to take her journey into her own hands and play a more active role in her care and quality of life.  She began seeing MPN specialist Dr. Brady Stein and feels she is getting much better care, communicating with Dr. Stein on a regular basis through the portal and having monthly CBCs. In her spare time, Andi enjoys spending time with family, including her partner, John, and at her second home in the country in Michigan.
