Mission Statement

This website documents one man's quest to cure his MS through determination, perseverance and a little luck.

Although harsh drugs and strict diet were successfully supressing my devestating MS relapses, disease progression was quickly deteriorating my ability to walk and slowly deteriorating my ability to think. The logical solution for me was to try HSCT, which is not FDA approved, so I left the country to do it. This website documents my research and journey to effect a cure.

Yesterday’s blood test came back with a white blood cell count of 4000, which means I’m no longer neutropenic. ????  Wow. That was fast!  I was one of only two people of fifteen who grew out of neutropenia so fast.

Frankly, I was a little worried because my stem cell harvest was on the low end of what people had reported; one Aussie harvested two and a half times what I did. However, Dr. Priesca said the harvest amount seems to be unimportant, as long as you reach a million per kilogram, which I easily cleared.

So, now no more face masks are required when Gwen and I leave the apartment; although, I will still be wearing one on the plane ride home on Saturday, and when I’m in crowded places, like an airport.

Gwen is feeding me a lot of protein. I need to put on a good 10-20 lbs before I start looking healthy again. Steak for dinner and again for lunch today.

Pain levels have been about typical for me, or maybe a little improvement. They were better right after chemo. I’m optimistic that they will continue to improve.
