After a very successful 1st meeting, 9 Cambridge patients and family members volunteered to create the Anglia Local MDS Patient Support branch.
Perhaps also organise activities together, fundraising events or raise awareness of MDS locally.
The first meeting open to all MDS patients, friends and family in Anglia will take place:
Date: Monday 30th Apr 2012
Note from the local organising team:
We intend to organise this informal get-together/coffee morning for people to meet and talk with others in similar circumstances. We hope this will prove beneficial for those, like me, who had never even heard of MDS before diagnosis. I found out about MDS as a result of a blood test ordered by my GP for completely different circumstances. Were it not for this blood test I would still be blissfully unaware of MDS. For those brave enough an (easy) quiz will be organised; participation is not compulsory. The gathering will start at about 10.30am and finish when it does. Rules – there aren’t any. Please do come along and help make the event a success.
If possible, to give us an idea of numbers attending this informal coffee morning, please contact our main office on 0207 733 7558
I hope many of you will take the opportunity to take part in these regular coffee mornings.
Please note that if you are a newly diagnosed patient and would like an information pack – or if you have any queries – or need any assistance – please contact the patient liaison at the national office in London on 0207 733 7558 – or email firstname.lastname@example.org
