Read more below about why it's so important to raise the money. [/p][p][b]MDS stands for Myelodysplastic Syndromes[/b], and it is a group of malignant blood disorders in which [url=https://mdspatientsupport.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/What-does-my-bone-marrow-do.pdf]the bone marrow[/url] fails to produce healthy blood cells.[/p][p] All types of blood cells can be affected, causing a range of symptoms.[/p][p]There is research into MDS and various treatments are currently used. However, the only cure is a bone marrow transplant which can take months or years to recover from.
