Anglia Local MDS Group - Cambridge
Support, Information, Awareness & Campaigns for those affected by Myelodysplastic Syndromes
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.
The main contact is John Heywood.
Come and share your questions and experience
Friends and family members are also invited
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.
