MDS FOUNDATION MDS AWARENESS WALK
Friday, July 20, 2018
139 Tremont Street Boston Proper, MA 02116
The MDS Foundation is hosting its first-ever MDS Awareness Walk to raise awareness of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), an often unrecognized and under-diagnosed, rare group of bone marrow failure disorders that affects an estimated 12,000-20,000 people each year in the United States. Today, there are an estimated 60,000-170,000 diagnosed MDS patients in the United States, with this number expected to grow.
Although great strides have been made, more work needs to be done in MDS and to better understand the needs of patients. Inspired by those impacted by MDS, our hope with the first-ever MDS Awareness Walk is to start a movement with helping to further spread awareness and bring attention to this disease among the physician community as well as the general public.
