Patient Video - Bill’s story: How did you find out you had MDS-related Anemia?
Bill talks about his experiences leading up to his diagnosis of MDS-related anemia. He first noticed an abnormality in his blood counts over a decade ago. Blood test results from his regular checkups revealed that his hemoglobin and neutrophil counts were low to below normal range. Although Bill says that he never experienced any physical symptoms or discomfort, eventually his hemoglobin and neutrophil counts dropped even more. At this point, his oncologist began treating him with an erythropoiesis stimulating agent (ESA) to try to slow down and improve his anemia.
In kind memory of the passing of William Veljovich who wanted to share his experiences with others suffering from MDS.
