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.

Ouch or "Hello Apoptosis"
Xander woke up shouting last night with excruciating bone pain in his legs. He received his first dose of pain meds. Emilie read him a fairy tale and he was able to go back to sleep.
