Smile New MDS Support Group - Washington DC Area

Hi,
In concert with the Inova's Schar Cancer Institute and the MDS Foundation, I'm helping to organize a patient-led support group for those affected by MDS in the Washington DC area.

The stated purpose for this group is to provide patients, caregivers and families a safe place to cope with the emotional aspects of MDS, to share with others their feelings and challenges and to hear from local MDS other related healthcare professionals. The meetings are open to all patients, caregivers and families of those touched by the disease.

Details of the VA MDS Support Group Meeting
2018 Dates: 10 Nov 2018 & 8 Dec 2018
Time: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Where: Inova Schar Cancer Institute, Life With Cancer Family Center
Address: 8411 Pennell Street, Fairfax, Virginia 22031
Room: Room 203

Light refreshments will be served.

To register, please email Brian Anderson at brian.anderson65@gmail.com. Include the names and contact information for all of the guests attending.

We look forward to seeing you there!
