Sophie is a beautiful 5 year old who loves to ice skate and play soccer. Sophie is unable to do either at this time, she has been diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and needs a bone marrow transplant. Since Sophie is Taiwanese, her most likely donor whould shares a similar ethnic background. Sophie was unable to find a matching marrow donor so she had a cord blood transplant. She is doing well, but does have some GVHD. Please keep Sophia in your thoughts.
