Patient Advocate, Founder of PVReporter.com

PV Reporter

David Wallace was 47 when he was diagnosed with polycythemia vera (PV) in 2009.  A self-proclaimed “aspiring web designer, publisher, writer, patient advocate and chief bottle washer,” David used his diagnosis as a motivating factor to push himself to always learn something new.  Utilizing social media to connect with informed patients and to gain a better understanding of emerging treatments, he found himself in an intense period of adjusting to a new norm of having a rare blood cancer for which doctors didn’t have a standard protocol for treatment.  David developed PVReporter.com, a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate, patient-focused website for myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs).  David’s philosophy is straightforward: “Educating the patient is essential, so the patient can guide their physician to meet his or her needs.”
