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

Bill explains that his anemia was a concern and that he wasn’t sure if it was MDS-related. It was not until his blood counts dropped significantly that he decided to get a bone marrow biopsy. The test detected a significant number of bone marrow blast cells, which led to Bill’s diagnosis of having MDS and the related anemia.

In kind memory of the passing of William Veljovich who wanted to share his experiences with others suffering from MDS.
