Ric was diagnosed with Myelodysplasia Syndrome in August of 2016. This disease is rare and not everyone is a candidate for a bone marrow transplant. Ric is a candidate because of his general good health other than the MDS. He has been receiving Vidaza chemo for the past 5 months. The last bone marrow biopsy shows that the Vidaza has stopped working. The doctors say that the time has come to prepare for the bone marrow transplant.
This site is a way for me to keep a journal of all that is going on with Ric and our family during this busy time. Please ask questions or post any messages you feel like sharing.
