Patient Video - Abby’s story: How was your MDS-related Anemia diagnosed?

Abby discusses the symptoms and challenges she experienced in her daily life – such as severe fatigue while working or when doing simple tasks like climbing stairs. When she discussed this with her oncologist, several blood tests and a bone marrow biopsy were performed.  The bone marrow biopsy result gave Abby a definitive diagnosis that she had MDS-related anemia.
