Beth Kart Probert was diagnosed with polycythemia vera in April of 2016, and after 15 months of treatment, she is now in remission. From the moment she was diagnosed, Beth was driven to find out as much information as she could about the disease, treatments available, and staying abreast with all new clinical trials and treatments in development. Beth also got involved with support groups, and patient advocacy and education.

She understands firsthand that information and knowledge pave the road to wellness. Beth also believes that a strong patient/doctor relationship, good support system, and including mindfulness into your daily life are all key factors in a successful healing plan.
