      Congratulations Alice! Great article (in spite of the inaccuracy … LOL). The whole press thing is kinda fun (I had a local newspaper write an article about me attending the Miracle Mile in North Carolina last year and CIDP). I had 3 objectives in mind with the article … educating people about CIDP, encouraging those who have autoimmune disorders/neuropathies, and giving Glory to God for what He’s done in my life. I felt the article achieved all three.

      I hope your article accomplished all that you intended. You certainly have educated people about the stem cell work that is going on at Northwestern and I think you’ve given a lot of very sick discouraged people hope.

      Thanks for continuing to be here at the Foundation Forums and I’m so glad you’re doing well.

      [FONT=”Microsoft Sans Serif”]thanks for your kind words gary.

      i only have ever really had a couple of objectives in anything i’ve done outside of my own personal healing– to try to give some hope where there has traditionally not been any, and to bring awareness to our common illness (through media).

      i had to giggle– as i am not a believer in “god,” (although i respect believers) — but i do try to bring glory to my various dogs– haha– that was tifany in this last article, the little white one… isn’t she cute?

      i read that having 10 or more of the same kind of animal constitutes hoarding– i’m still okay as i only have 7 dogs and one cat… ๐Ÿ™‚ [/FONT]
