This is the Biography of me, Alexander Salsitz (I prefer Xander). I am a 13 year old boy who's life changed in January 2012 when I was diagnosed with MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome). I have had 3 bone marrow transplants since then, the most recent one in April 2013. This blog documents my journey, beginning with my diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing recovery.

Big blood draw
We were at the blood draw lab at 07:30 as planned. Xander could not believe he had that much blood to give.
