Blogger: Today With PokieToo and Parkinson's Disease - Formatting Settings
Little did I think a year ago all of this could possibly be going on in the world at one time. I can only say God is definitely ready for a change. The economy crashing before our eyes...unemployment everywhere. I had to go to St. Louis, Missouri last Friday and drove down the major factory grouping on Limburgh Blvd. This is where plants like Boeing and such are located. Plant after plant with half empty lots are closed down all together....car dealerships just three months ago full now empty or closed. It was to say the least sobering. Too many people for me to fathom suffering in one way or another. So much sadness everywhere.
Out of all this this week has come huge shooting stars...The signing of the stem cell research bill, Monday has just took off. I had an email from a new friend who is leaving for possibly on of the fist stem cell transplants from a soon to be arriving grandchild.....Now just how awesome is that. The first of this week this lady was at her wits end and close to suicide. 54 years old and on a huge amount of cross matched meds....now look !!!!! On her way to a possible cure. I am so thrilled to be a part of this history that will change man kind.
Tomorrow I will leave for Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress but this is my plan while I am traveling. Get a form letter composed to be sent out to all the institutions testing cell transplant, offering my family history and the fact that we have four generations living and all have some neurological disorder plus one generation passed that exhibited such disorders. I can only say now, the phones are hopping right now with people calling for research entry.....get in there let them know where you are....fax , send a letter call......it's important....love pokie
