Often beginning as a seemingly harmless case of fatigue, myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, is a disorder of the bone marrow which can lead to leukemia. This program provides an overview of the disease, pointing out that it is virtually unknown to the general public and often not diagnosed by medical caregivers. Whereas little could be done for MDS patients in previous years, the program features several success stories as it details recent research into the disease. Specific procedures, including blood transfusions and bone marrow transplants, are identified. Interview subjects include Dr. Alan List of the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Dr. James Rossetti of the Western Pennsylvania Cancer Institute.
