from Chuck Donovan
President, Charlotte Lozier Institute
The Charlotte Lozier Institute is pleased to present our first-ever video celebrating one account of a life-saving ethical adult stem cell treatment.
Our short video recounts the poignant story of Paul Wagle, a young man from Kansas who was diagnosed with cancer at age 10 and endured chemotherapy for two-and-a-half years only to then relapse.
Doctors informed him he was part of the “15% of patients where chemotherapy did not work.” So they gave him another option – adult stem cell treatment – and the rest is history.
I hope you will take a moment now to watch our brand new video that we've posted below and hear from Paul himself about how adult stem cells saved his life:
Many others like Paul are currently being treated with non-controversial adult stem cell transplants, which do not require the destruction of a human life for the healing of another, while many more could benefit if only they knew of this hope. You might be interested to know that a recent press release on a February 2015Lancet Haematology study says the following:
HSCT (also known as blood and bone marrow transplant) is most often used to treat diseases of the blood and several types of cancer such as multiple myeloma or leukaemia. For many people with these diseases the only possibility of a cure is to have a HSCT.CLI began supporting Stem Cell Research Facts, a valuable and accessible resource for ethical adult stem cell research and education, in January.
We plan to continue sponsoring more inspiring videos like this one to raise awareness about this life-saving, science-based, and ethical option of treatment. I hope you will share CLI’s important video with your family and friends, and please feel free to reply to me using this link with your thoughts on it.
The stem cell issue is filled with questions, confusion, and controversy about science, cures and the best ways to find those cures.
Often ignored in the discussion is one glaring, indisputable fact: certain kinds of stem cells—called adult stem cells—are already helping people with cures and treatments, with the real promise and hope that more can be done. If one hears in the news about stem cells helping people, you can be sure that it is the result of adult stem cells, as that is the only type of stem cell helping people today. The public, and patients, need to hear about these incredible advances. That is why this web site was created.
