There aren't that many of us with MDS
It's a rare disorder, so we can offer you a level of support and service you won't get elsewhere. Since 2008 our charity has provided information and support to thousands of people. To us, our members are part of our community and we are here to support your individual needs. If you prefer a more hands-off approach, that's fine too. Whatever you need.
What people say about the MDS Patient Support Group
"Getting in touch with the MDS Patient Support Group is proving to be one of the most reassuring (and helpful) things we have done so far since my Dad was diagnosed."
"I have been to only 2 patient meetings so far and found them both very helpful. Meeting other MDS patients and sharing experiences with them has made a great difference to the way in which I deal with my own MDS and put my own current medical position in perspective."
“I’m really glad I have connected with the MDS Support Group and am so thankful for all you do.” Read more testimonials
