    Hi,
    I didn’t know what topic to call this. I am considered pre-MDS via bone marrow biopsy. I have 4 mutations that do not look good, low RBC, WBC of 1.7, Hemoglobin 10.5, platelets 63,000. Just wanted to let this out. My cousin was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemkia. He had one round of chemo and chose not to have more. He has hospice now. He is a priest and not at all afraid of this journey….perfectly at peace. Has anyone else had any relatives with MDS or AML? I know it is not supposed to run in families, but it was still so weird for me to hear his diagnosis. I am learning from his journey.
