The Stem Cell Effect; Personal Reflections

The Stem Cell Effect; Personal Reflections.

About 2 weeks ago, life threw me some curveballs: I sprained my ankle quite badly, my daughter had some serious medical issues. We spent a lot of time at the hospital. The ankle is much better and my daughter is on the mend. Before my 1st Stem Cell Transplant, all this would have totally put me out of commission. I am dead serious, this would have been BAD.

I handled everything just like the “old” Judi. I was present, I was walking (even with the bad ankle), I even stayed up for almost 48 hours at the hospital. Yesterday, I walked for 3 hours in different stores…life goes on. Was my walking pretty? No, it stunk. Before the first transplant in June 2010, I could not stand on my legs longer than a few minutes. I walked for 3 hours yesterday!!!! Reminder to self: I AM BETTER. I plan to return for another transplant to make further repairs to this walking. PLEASE TELL ME MY FRIENDS, WHAT HOPE WAS THERE FOR SOMEONE WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS 10 YEARS AGO? While I wait for a cure that WILL come, I will continue to use Stem Cells as my therapy. I will go to the ends of the earth to make this possible. And I will continue to tell my story. Maybe one day, I won’t have to go to the ends of the earth, but will be able to have treatment in my city 🙂

    Judi, you are a constant source of hope and inspiration for those with issues, medical or otherwise.

      Mark, it was so good to see you today! As you probably noted, I still have this little companion called Multiple Sclerosis. Am I better? yes. Do I need more repair? you betcha! Will I go get some more Stem Cells? YES!
      Thank you for being such a wonderful support!!
