Holly Huber received stem cell treatment four years after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Holly started a blog, I Love My New Stem Cells to share her experience.
As an educated woman (2 bachelors and a masters), Holly did the research and decided to venture outside of the United States in order to have the Stem Cell Treatment because it is not yet approved here. I can imagine Holly’s smile as she says in her blog, “MS progression just doesn’t follow the FDA’s schedule.”
Researching the possible benefits of stem cell treatment gave Holly hope before she decided to go.
After just 30 days Holly felt improvement! She stayed in the treatment center in Costa Rica, and by the time she left, she was feeling much better. Holly shares the information on her blog, I Love My New Stem Cells where she talks about the 8 intrathecal injections of adult stem cells she received in her spine. For her, there was only a little discomfort and a lot of benefits!
Holly recognized the risks and decided it was worth it. On her blog, Holly says, “Now that I have gone to Costa Rica, had success with the treatment, and continue to feel improvement … I now have a second chance for a healthy future.”
Unfortunately this stem cell treatment doesn’t work for everyone, for Holly it did. We all need to work with our health care team and make our own decisions about our MS management.
It will be fun to follow Holly and continue to be inspired by her story.
