I'm sad that everyone doesn't have the same results as I did.


 This week I responded to a person who had stem cell treatment at the same clinic I went to.  Unfortunately this person did not have good results and now feels like I am somewhat of a "bad person" for sharing my personal story.  I don't share and answer questions to hurt or mislead anyone, so I thought I would share my response to those who think I am a fraud:

"I understand that you may not be in a good place.  If I hadn't experienced favorable results, I think it would be reasonable to have ex...

A 13 mile bike ride on my new 3 speed beach cruiser!


We had sold my bicycle just the season before.  I had lost the strength to ride even a few blocks and my balance was hit and miss.  I was slowly surrendering to my limitations.

When we returned home from my stem cell treatment, it was soon evident that I was regaining strength, balance, and stamina.  Santa was nice enough to give me another beach cruiser, and this one had a basket and all all the bells and whistles =)

First I rode 4 blocks to the market to buy a weekly lotto ticket.  Then i...

Meet my dad.

My dad was so thrilled with my astonishing improvement since I had my stem cell treatment for Multiple Sclerosis.  He was inspired to ask about stem cell treatment for his Type II Diabetes.  His motivation to become more proactive in his own healthcare led him to fill out the application.  Now we are heading back down to Cost Rica for his treatment in May.  Hooray, another trip back to Costa Rica. He's a good Dad. He's going to let me share his experience with you all too.

Doctor's Gag Orders - Great commentary on NPR

Talk of the Nation You can find Web reviews of just about anything these days, and some sites are making it easy to find and broadcast and opinions and complaints about doctors — offering no recourse if a doctor is unfairly maligned. Some physicians are asking patients to sign a legal document waiving their right to post an unauthorized online review. Dr. Jeffrey Segal, CEO and founder of Medical Justice, talks about leading the organization that is behind the waiver.

Take a listen and se...

A letter from Multiple Sclerosis

Dear Newly Diagnosed,


     I know you don't want to talk to me right now and I can't say I blame you.  I'm sure it was quite a shock, finding me camped on your doorstep that day, with my luggage packed.  And I know you didn't "exactly" invite me in, but here I am.

     I'm certain you're probably wondering how I got your address in the first place, aren't you?  Everybody always asks me that stupid question.  It was easy really.  I looked you up in a statistical m...

Is it a distraction?

Embryonic stem cell reversal is distraction, congressman says -

A top congressional Republican on Sunday criticized President Barack Obama's expected decision to reverse the Bush administration's limits on embryonic stem-cell research, calling it a distraction from the country's economic slump.

MS Awareness Week


Progress on MS can’t wait.  Move it… and move us closer to a world free of MS during MS Awareness Week, March 2-8.
Every hour someone is diagnosed with MS, a chronic disease of the central nervous system for which there is no cure.  Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and stops people from moving.  Many have trouble imagining what their lives would be without the ability to move, but I know the effects of MS; I have experienced the devastation...

I have done more research than most read or understand

Here is some more clarification for all of you who are interested and may still be misinformed.

I had stem cell treatment done outside the United States. Forget about politics and FDA approvals and US trials. Just try to wrap your head around the factual information.

I had 8 intrathecal injections of adult stem cells extracted from donated umbilical cord blood and 2 IV infusions of stem cells extracted from my own fat tissue.

My own stem cells that were extracted from my fat tissue are autolo...

A long awaited update ...

I apologize for not updating you all on my progress sooner. It has been somewhat of a whirlwind since the beginning of the year. I have been getting phone calls and responding to emails daily asking about my stem cell treatment experience.

I have continued to experience good results since having the stem cell treatment in Costa Rica last November. My balance is excellent and I continue to see well out of my right eye. The best is that I still have not had a bladder or bowel "incident" since com...
