KENT REGION MDS SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS
PATIENT-TO-PATIENT SUPPORT FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES

Come and join this growing and energetic group in this region. All local patients are welcome to attend, as are relatives and friends.
This is an opportunity to get to know one another, share experiences and increase the support network in the area.
This is also an important opportunity for newly-diagnosed patients to meet others who have been living with MDS for a while.
Thank you for making everyone welcome.
Date: 14th of October
Time: 16.30 pm – 18:30 pm - Tea and coffee will be served from 16.15
Location: St. Dunstan’s Hall, 80 London Road, Canterbury, Kent, CT2 8LS
- Initial Meeting Introductions
- Q & A Session
- Quality of Life Discussion – Patients and carers share their experience in dealing with the disease
- Date of Next Meeting
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.
If you have never contacted MDS UK, please contact the main office for a full Patient Information Pack before attending the Kent Support Group.
If you can, please tell us if you are coming – this will help us to plan refreshments
