Next 2016 meeting dates announced:  6th July

Please feel free to suggest topics and themes that you would like to hear about – or speakers you have found helpful.
Please also consider giving a brief informal chat yourself about how you are dealing with MDS – what you have learnt, what has been helpful, what has been good to avoid as well.  This is incredibly useful information to share with others.

Carers/relatives/friends also particularly welcome to share their experience.  As an observer, you see things differently, you will contribute immensely to such a group meeting.  You also have tips and advice – for patients, but also for fellow carers.
You need support too – it is sometimes not so easy.  Come and share what is helping you – and what’s not so helpful.
