Founded in 1994, the MDS Foundation is the only not-for-profit global organization dedicated solely to improving outcomes for patients with MDS.

Over the last 20 years, the treatment and understanding of MDS has evolved in many ways. Once referred to as pre-leukemia, MDS is now recognized worldwide as a blood cancer. Originally, there were no official treatments for MDS. Today, there are 5 approved treatment options with many more in the development phase.
