Smile "For it is in giving that we receive..." - My Story

Dear Friends,

I am writing to ask you to join me in my fundraising efforts in support of the Aplastic Anemia & International MDS Foundation. My goal is to find 100 people willing to "vote" in support of it.

I was diagnosed with MDS back in 1999, while a full-scholarship Bulgarian student at Harvard College. Ten years later, my long and painful journey as an MDS patient is over, thanks to a life-saving bone marrow transplant at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

Organizations like the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation make a huge difference in the lives of patients like myself and many others. They provide information to patients and families, support the search for a cure and inspire hope.


Thank you and have the Happiest of Holidays!

Please feel free to forward my email to your friends and families.

-Iva Tsekova
