I saw an inspiring piece recently on CBS news about a woman with MS who is about to take part in a pioneering stem cell experiment.
The Tisch MSRCNY Phase I Clinical Stem Cell Trial was featured on the CBS Evening News on Monday, January 20th. For those of you who missed the segment, CBS has posted the video and a text article on the study and its approval.
I feel like the medical community gets a little closer each day to finding a cure to MS and it's nice to see it being discussed in such a mainstream news forum.
P.S. A bit about me...I have been diagnosed with MS for over 20 years and am currently being treated for secondary progressive MS. I am married with a beautiful little boy and until recently worked full-time using both a manual wheelchair and at times a power chair. I battled stage III breast cancer and consider myself to be a survivor. I am grateful to be a part of this community and share my experiences with you and hope that in some small way they may be useful to you.
