    Hi Cheryl,
    I have mds/mdpn/cmml.
    I am 54 yrs old.
    ANEMIA and I are OLD friends. Sarcasm
    My anemia was low enough after I have my BMB done that I finally received 2 iron infusions.
    It helped for a while,
    My shortness of breath when I walk exc affects my life, I can not walk very long at all again.
    My family bought me a an electric scootter to use so that I could go out and be a member of society.
    My oncology team are watching and waiting.
    I am told that since I have CMML. there is no treatment at all.
    Ask your mothers dr’ if she is eligible for iron infusion’s.
