Erik is a 29 years old Swedish-Angolan (Afro-European) male living in Stockholm, Sweden.Erik’s sickness began in 2014, when became ill more often and tired all the time. The doctor’s couldn’t set the diagnosis until2017, an aggressive form of MDS (Myelodysplastic syndromes). Luckily, his father was able to donate blood stem cells in August the same year and the transplant was seen to be successful. In January 2019 he unfortunately was diagnosed with AML (Acute myeloid leukemia) and the MDS was active again. Now the MDS is in an even more aggressive state than before the transplant and the doctors are running out of options for treatment. Without another transplant, he will not survive.
