Several volunteers run this regional group – and have set themselves up as a committee. All members are MDS patients.
Activities alternate between presentations and general get together opportunities. This group also gets involved in raising MDS awareness regionally.

Very sadly – one of the committee members – Vicki Wall – passed away on the 9th February 2013, after many weeks in hospital – due to a severe infection. As one of the very active Cambridge committee member – we wanted to place a few words on our site to remember Vicki, mark her fantastic contribution to the group and let her fellow members say a few words about her.

Update Oct 2013 – we have just learnt that Vicki had made a will – and very generously left £500 to MDS UK. We are so grateful to her for this – not only for the funds, but also for having the courage to make a formal will. This is often a difficult topic for all patients and families.
Vicky was a very talented lady and one of her friends – Sheila Walker – donated a lovely quilt she had made, which the Anglia group offered as a prize in a raffle. Here is the photo of the quilt. Thank you to both Sheila for donating the quilt – and Chris for the raffle.
