    We live north of Atlanta Georgia and are wondering if anyone knows of any support groups around this area? Thank you for your comments.

    Hi, I was just diagnosed last Thursday and would be interested in a support group. I live in Woodstock, GA. I don’t know any details except it’s MDS and I have low platelets.

    Hello, I live in Cherokee County (Canton area) and just started attending a support group at Northside Forsyth in Cumming on Thursdays from 12:30-2:00. There is also a gentle yoga class that follows from 2:00-3:00. Also, there is a women’s only cancer support group at Northside Cherokee on the third Wednesday of every month from 12:30-2:00. Both these groups are sponsored by Cancer Support Community Atlanta and are not MDS specific. You must attend an orientation before attending and information can be found at I was able to attend the orientation right before the support group at Forsyth.

    I would be very interested in meeting you both. It is so hard to find someone who truly understands this unpredictable condition and can relate to what we are going through. Please feel free to reach out to me at I wish you all the best!
