    Good morning and thank you for all the information and insight. My boyfriend was recently diagnosed with MDS. We are in the Chicago area and would really appreciate any recommendations of providers that specialize in MDS. We’re hoping to have a plan of care outlined as soon as possible. Thank you and God bless

    I know this is a difficult situation for you and I would recommend that you take him to one of our Centers of Excellence in MDS for a second opinion. He should be very carefully assessed before undergoing any treatment. Benefits versus risk analysis should be done with any treatment. Following is a link to our Centers of Excellence worldwide https://www.mds-foundation.org/mds-centeres-of-excellence/. Just look under Illinois and you will find 4 MDS Centers of Excellence to choose from. I hope this helps.
