I am so honored and humbled to be one of Dr. Burt’s Everyday Miracles. Dr. Richard Burt takes us on his 30+ year quest to treat Multiple Sclerosis and autoimmune diseases with Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT). He delves into how he goes against the medical establishment, to prove his treatment as one to be considered, as well as possibly become the standard of care, to treat autoimmune diseases.
Nearly 6 years have passed, and I continue to be free of relapse, free of MS medications, and using no assistive devices. Absolutely surreal! To Dr Burt I say, Thank you for saving so many of us and for continuing your ground-breaking research. You have given us hope that we can beat these previously incurable diseases.
Here is the CBS This Morning Segment about HSCT for RRMS, with Dr. Burt commenting on the treatments and results. There is a short but nice cost benefit ratio discussion about the cost of the treatment relative to MS drug costs.
