Adult Stem Cells Save a Woman’s Life

A woman’s life has been saved because of adult stem cells and the liberal is ignoring it.

Morrow’s nurse from her third heart attack had been researching adult stem-cell therapy and came across a groundbreaking study at the Texas Heart Institute. Her health records were sent to Texas.

On Oct. 14, 2006 — her birthday — she went into surgery. Doctors removed about 50cc of bone marrow from her left hip. Then the cells were cultivated. Four hours later, she was back in surgery, where 30 million stem cells were injected into the right side of her heart.

Morrow stayed in Texas for nine days and returned every two weeks through January. A local businessman, for whom she had catered, paid for all of her plane trips.

This month, she returned to the University of Alabama, where she had received dire news just a year ago. She had another CT scan to see how her heart was functioning.

“The doctor calls and says, ‘Ma’am, the right side of your heart is normal.'”

“I told the doctor, ‘I don’t understand why we have this huge political mess going on about stem cells,'” Morrow says. “I’m living proof that adult stem cells work far better than embryonic. And why should embryonic even be in discussion?

She doesn’t even need her $85,000 defibrillator anymore. The cost to culture the stem cells, Morrow says: Less than $600. “This is going to revolutionize heart disease.

Where is the media? Completely silent. Not surprised.
