Patient Video - Holly's story: What has been the greatest challenge with your MDS treatment?

Holly talks about the challenges she experiences from her MDS treatment. Her white blood cell counts were very low which caused infections and multiple hospital stays, which in turn delayed her treatment and transplant date. However, the good news she shares is that her white counts have now increased, and her transplant date is confirmed.
