More than 2.3 million people around the world are living with multiple sclerosis; it’s the most common disabling neurological condition among adults age 20-50.
Allison Carr, is a mother of four who describes the mysterious symptoms that started when she was a teen and went undiagnosed for years until she began stumbling at work. Doctors found lesions on her brain and spine. The prognosis was poor: she would likely be paralyzed within a few years.
As a mother of four, Allison was afraid – but she was determined to fight. When a friend told her about adult stem cell therapy, she recalls, “Somehow I knew that this was going to change my life.”
That’s exactly what Allison’s adult stem cell transplant did. She saw near-immediate improvement and is now back to cycling and horseback riding with her daughters – and she is spreading the word. “If stem cell therapy can stop the progression of multiple sclerosis in me, I cannot imagine the possibilities that stem cells can do for so many other people with other conditions as well,” she says.
Allison is one of more than 1.5 million patients worldwide who have been treated successfully using non-controversial adult stem cells. Her story is the latest proof that these scientifically validated, ethical treatments truly work – yet the federal government and much of the scientific community have been slow to embrace the possibilities, still relying on outdated research that involves destroying human embryos or harvesting body parts from aborted babies.
For the sake of patients like Allison, this must change. Groups like the Charlotte Lozier Institute are urging policymakers to prioritize research and therapies that produce results and to put patients first.
