PNH Disease – A Very Rare Blood Disorder

Devastating Blood Disorder with Diverse Symptoms

PNH is a deadly life-threatening disease with devastating consequences. 35% of patients die within 5 years of diagnosis despite best supportive care. You might not have heard of PNH–it’s a rare blood disorder that affects a few patients per million. But its rarity doesn’t make it any less significant. Join one Dr. Eloy Roman, one of the country’s only experts on this disease, and a patient advocate as we go behind the mystery of PNH.

The Balancing Act

    Today was the first time watching the episode and by luck this was a topic. I am overly excited for the information. My daughter who is 23 was diagnosed with Lymphoma only 9 months ago and a blood clot in her leg (which no one knows why or how it has developed). It took them 3 months and 9 different Dr’s to finally diagnose her with the Lymphoma but still no confirmation of the blood clot in her leg .She has done chemotherapy for 6 months and we are awaiting results for further diagnoses of the Lymphoma. But I want to say thank you for broadcasting this information because now I have a request for the Dr’s to perform.
