At NW and just got my "stemmies" back

I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but there is a facebook page, “CIDP and Stem Cell Transplant” where most of my posts are going …

That said, I was initially turned away last Jan. Dr. Burt adjusted my treatment and brought me back in May and then I was accepted into the program. I’ve been here in Chicago since July 11th going through the procedure. I received my stem cells back on Aug 23rd (referred to as your “new” birthday).

Has it been hard? At times. Did it take 7 months of planning to pull it off? Yes! Is it worth it? YES and a thousand times, yes!

This has been the most amazing experience of my entire life – almost worth having the CIDP to be here. Nine patients received their stem cells back (from Dr. Burt’s program) this week. I feel so honored to be part of this group. 4 have MS, 3 have CIDP, 1 has Lupus and 1 has Crohn’s. It works on ALL autoimmune conditions.

This is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.

Good luck to all – you don’t know what will happen until you try!!!!!
