To learn more about how transplants are used for MDS treatment I encourage you to watch my interview with Dr. Bart Scott, an expert in bone marrow failure from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center at http://www.patientpower.info/video/bone-marrow-transplant-for-myelodysplastic-syndrome-mds/

Like many others, I’m wishing Roberts a good journey with her fight against this cancer. As a 16-year-leukemia survivor who knows many who are doing well after transplant, I am betting we’ll enjoy Robin Roberts on television for many more years to come.
