Ian was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma in Feb. 2009. He has been in remission for five years.
In Aug. Ian began to have concerning bruising. His lab work was up and down. In late Sept., we received a call from Dr. Khan, one of Ian's oncologists, that the bone marrow biopsy is showing the early signs of myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS. Basically that means that his bone marrow is not working due to his past treatment from his brain tumor.
Fast forward and Ian's sister, Cassandra was a match and donated bone marrow to Ian on October 28th, 2013.
