Gracias por su comentario.

My wife died of MDS in Sept. 2011 at age 79. She was treated at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University in Atlanta. She underwent many blood infusions and some injections. There was hope that a bone marrow transplant would provide a positive, but the doctors said she was not a candidate because of her age. I understand there is research going on to make the bone marrow transplants more receptive and eliminate the conditions of rejection and other complications. Too late for my wife, but I'd like to be kept updated on progress in MDS research by Sloan Kettering.
