100 Q&A book on MDS – revised edition

WP_20150728_009We have the latest revised edition of the really helpful 100 Questions & Answers book on MDS available from our office – free of charge to patients.

Some of you may have been given the initial 2008 edition, which we distributed a few years ago – and was extremely popular amongst our members.

For those of you who don’t know it – this is a patient friendly book on MDS, providing detailed information on several aspects of MDS, including chapters on :

• What is MDS?
• Is it a cancer?
• How is MDS diagnosed?
• What’s the best treatment for me?

The latest version was published in July 2015 and includes the revised MDS prognostic score – IPSS-R.

The book is fully endorsed by MDS experts, the MDS Foundation, the MDS Alliance, and or course MDS UK Patient Support Group.

Please note, the 100 Q&A book on MDS is a publication written for a USA patient audience. Some of the drugs may not yet be available in the UK/Europe and some of the measurements for blood counts may differ.  Please contact us if you if you have any queries.

Display copies for your hospital

We will provide a display copy at all major hospitals, alongside our leaflets and newsletters.  Please let us know if you’d like to have a display copy for your hospital – so that more patients can take advantage of the information.

As a not for profit organisation, MDS UK was very kindly given a price discount by the publishers – Jones & Bartlett Learning – for which we are extremely grateful!
As we  are offering the booklet for free to patients, we still have to raise some funds to purchase further copies.

If you are able to help make this booklet available to more patients, please consider donating towards this project via this Virgin Money Giving page.
