This book was written by Barbara Hanson and Jeannine Richardson (two of a very small group of people in the world who have received umbilical cord stem cell therapy for COPD) and tells the story of how the Stem Cell Pioneers group (an online discussion forum) got started and their quest to find a cure for an incurable disease. It wasn’t all smooth sailing! The book explains the different types of stem cell therapy available today and describes in detail their treatment and day-to-day progress, among other highlights. The book is a must for anyone considering stem cell therapy for any disease. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be used to maintain the forum www.stemcellpioneers.com. It is also the dream of the authors to start a fund to help those who cannot afford stem cell treatment. Your purchase of this book will help make those dreams come true.
