Default Not Car related BUT Car guy related !!!

As a lot of you know I have been diagnosed with ALS.
A few of you know I have been given the opportunity to partake in a research study called Brain storm research study to find a cure for ALS. I am one of only 48 people in the United States to be involved in this study.
The procedure is they harvest some of my Bone Marrow then rework some of the cells from the Bone Marrow and in 24 days it is reintroduced ( injected ) back into my spine & 12 spots in my right arm.
After that I am back and forth to the hospital on specific dates & time to track the progress of the procedure .
Up to today there has been 3 visits to the hospital to do all the work up's for the start of the procedure.
Today we went in for the Bone Marrow Harvest.
All went well & am not hurting at this point but we will see what the morning brings.
We are hoping that this Research study will have " SHOCKING "
( just to keep it car related ) Results.
Not just for me / I feel in my Hart of Harts this won't cure me but maybe slow the progress of this Disease.
My hope is that this helps in some small way to cure ALS in the 30,000 +
people that are affected in the United States.

As a side note Research is finding that the single LARGEST individual group that is getting effected is for some reason the MILITARY

If you would like any information about what I know about ALS or would like to donate to the cure of this Disease email me at:
WPWZ@COMCAST.NET

It's a little late to go to the garage now But in the morning it's back to my own form of " SHOCK THERAPY "

Brother Bill: Margretha and I knew about the ALS, of course, but not about the study / treatment protocol. You and Lee are certainly in our prayers, and we will redouble them now for the Brain Storm study. You are a fine example for the study: warm hearted and ever the optimist....Our precious Lord has a plan and we know the best is yet to come!!

Warm fuzzy vibes coming your way! You will get excellent treatment in the research program, at least that's my experience at John's Hopkins in two cancer research programs.

Bill, I know you will do well, you have such a positive attitude about life. Some of the best therapy is to keep busy doing what you do best. Let us know if you want to take Sheba out for some exercise, we would love to meet up with you, Chuck S.

Chuck:
This is just a thought , only halfway through my 1 st, tea this AM
What about in say a month or two we look at something 1/2 way between us.
( Date / Time / Location to be determined later )
Some type of 2 day deal.

Boy my brain is on fire here must be the real tea not the decaf type.
We put out the request to the Barner to join us & charge say a $10.00
fee / donation to go to ALS research.
Do you think there would be any takers ??

Bill, if you and Chuck put a cruise together, I'll be happy to send in a donation. It's too cold up north, for this transplanted New Yorker, now that I'm a Floridian... Vic
