I missed this story when it first aired and I'm very glad that I found it. I was first "cured" by my own stems cells in 1989 when I had an autologous bone marrow transplant to battle agressive non-Hogdkins Lymphoma. Because of other chemo I received prior to the transplant, my heart has been steadily failing for about 15 years. My future currently has a heart transplant in it but it would be so much better if that heart were made of my own cells. Although I am at peace and have become quite comfortable with my own eventual death, there is still a great desire to fight with all I and medicine have to work with. I understand there are many people who are conflicted about this process but as God provides blessed challenges for all of us, he also provides blessed tools to overcome them. "...Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for God is with me. His rod and staff, they comfort me..." (Psalm 23) Dr Doris Taylor and many other researches around the world are God's 'rod and staff', they comfort me. Thank you Krista! Peace, Lisa
