Make Blood Cancer Visible Campaign in Edinburgh from 24 to 29 September

Mon 24th - Sat 29th Sept: Waverly Mall, Edinburgh, EH1 1BQ

“This last week of September 2018, the Make Blood Cancer Visible campaign has moved to Edinburgh, to highlight the need for better blood cancer awareness in Scotland specifically.

Please come and visit the exhibit at Waverley Mall and learn more about how blood cancers affect patients – and how everyone needs to understand that blood cancers are the 5th major cancer type we all need to be aware of.

MDS patient Ally Boyle, from Glasgow, takes part in the exhibition. Read Ally's patient story here.

Ally, who has also attended the London exhibit of this campaign, posted in his Twitter account:

The #MakeBloodCancerVisible exhibit looking fantastic in Edinburgh. Great to meet fellow @MDS_UK patient Tricia @Pogster and 2 of our amazing @fire_scot @AnthonyNolan volunteers @AndyKelly1383 @mikesmith681.

We thank Janssen UK for sponsoring this work and making this awareness campaign possible. Without their help and organization, this type of work would not have been possible.

Are you an MDS Patient in Scotland? We would like to hear from you!

We would like to create more services and offer more support to MDS patients in Scotland – so we’d like to hear from you if you would be interested in a local support group in Scotland?

Our support groups meet 3 times a year – for about 3 hours – and usually include a presentation on a special MDS topic, and lots of time for patient to patient exchange.
