Barbara, I have read your two most recent interviews as well your posts on your site. Both you and Jeannine should be commended for the time and effort you both have dedicated to this most worthy cause. It always takes someone to step forward to undertake this arduous job and I am glad we have the both of you... I am still scanning the sites picking up useful information to help me make an informed decision in my Stem Cell selection. Your constant reminder about not rushing to decision is a very important note, because when you suffer from this disease you tend to think that you don't have much time to help arrest it. Making a rushed decision is not the route one should take. I'm also very interested in the Valve Insertion program that a couple of companies are involved in. I received such a benefit from my 1994 ( LVR ) that I would be very favorable to this procedure, especially since it is non-invasive and reversible. I'm really looking forward to this becoming available here in the U.S. If you should hear of any of them looking for clinical volunteers please let me know.
