The Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation (AA&MDSIF) created and maintains Stories of Hope as a service to those dealing with aplastic anemia, MDS, and PNH. Some of the stories on this site discuss medical treatment options patients have used; however, these stories are not intended as medical advice and should not be construed as such. AA&MDSIF recognizes that each patient, their treatment options, and the circumstances surrounding their bone marrow failure disease, is unique.Note that inclusion of information in a Story of Hope does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of any medical care provider, treatment practice, medication, product, or manufacturer. AA&MDSIF encourages patients to seek medical advice from a qualified hematologist/oncologist and to discuss their individual questions and concerns with their doctor.
