Stem Cell Treatment

As many of you already know, Jim has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis for which there is no cure and the only solution to this illness is to take medication to slow down the progression which come with multiple side effects (some of which can damage the liver).

In order to avoid these side effects and improve his quality of life for as long as we can, Jim and I have decided to get stem cell treatments in Scottsdale, Arizona this month and again three months later. We have studied this new and innovative medical procedure and are very impressed with the institute’s 80% success rate thus far.

Please take the time to visit their web site: to learn more about stem cell research and read patient testimonials about how their lives have improved after receiving treatment. You will find it very informative and the site should answer any questions or concerns you may have about our decision.

Unfortunately its not covered by insurance, therefore we have to finance the expense ourselves and we have aquired a credit card with 0% interest for 15 months to pay for treatment which is due on September 20, 2017.

We want to try to pay off the loan before the 0% interest is up to same some money.  Any help towards the final cost of $9,000, large or small, would greatly be appreciated and we both thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts.
