UPDATE: I’ve now updated the poll to allow readers to choose up to 2 answers since this is important given the new option of “If facing a disease…”
One of the cool things about writing this blog is that I get to meet so many amazing people including patients and their families as well as patient advocates.
I have been surprised by the number of people who have gone to other countries for stem cell treatments. We heard in the news about pitcher Bartolo Colon going to the Dominican Republic for a stem cell treatment but many regular, non-famous people are getting these treatments too. I have met many of them. I don’t judge them because I know what it is like to be a patient. I simply ask how it went from them and wish them the best.
So I’m curious how many of you out there have had a stem cell treatment or have had a family member or friend who did? Please take part in the poll above. If you had a treatment and are comfortable about it, please share your experience in the comments.
