Patient panel discussions are a chance to meet some of the inspiring patients, caregivers and parents who are dealing with a bone marrow failure disease.  Panel discussions are a bit different from our regular educational webinars so please plan to participate via the Q & A window.  This is a great webinar for people diagnosed with MDS or those who are providing care to someone with the disease.  We extend a special invitation to newly diagnosed patients to join us to learn more about living with the disease and to sign up for our MDS support group emails.  As always, our panelists cannot provide you with medical advice and we encourage you to ask your treating hematologist or oncologist about your specific health needs.
