I am a 28 year old mother of one. I have had M.S. for about 7 years. I was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting M.S.
I have a great story to tell.
I am here though to share the treatment I went through that I believed saved my life. My Neurologist Dr. George Kraft at the University of Washington Medical Center, was at a loss since no treatment was helping me. Since I could not live on steroids for the rest of my life he introduced me to Dr. Bowen, who has been heading a study in Seattle. The study has been going on for some time although in many different places. I was accepted into the study and was treated at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and U.W.M.C.
The studies name is 'High Dose Immunosupression and Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Poor Prognosis Multiple Sclerosis'
That pretty much explains the whole treatment.
Here is a link to the web site for this particular study.
I would love to talk with anyone who has questions or just wants to talk.
