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.
If you have never contacted MDS UK, please contact the main office for a full Patient Information Pack before attending the Midlands Support Group.
If you can, please tell us if you are coming – this will help us to plan refreshments
