    Hi everyone

    I hope you are all doing well and staying strong. I just came to know today that my dad’s MDS progressed into Lukemia. Something that we sort of expected but didn’t know it will happen so fast. My dad has been battling the disease for about a year now and I have seen him deteriorate gradually. With the MDS progressing into Leukemia, I feel that this might be the end. I don’t know what am I dealing with here. The doctors don’t think my dad will survive the chemo and hence he is just getting blood and platelet transfusion. Does anyone know much about this? Please help me if you can. Thanks a lot, Raghda

    Hi Sherry

    Thanks a lot for your reply. My dads name is Aly and he is 76 years old today. He is in the higher risk MdS blasts >7%. My dad refused to take Vidaza at the early stage of the disease. He has been surviving just on supportive care. Thank you
