Alzheimer's disease

Dear Stem Cell Transplant Team:

  I would like to take this time to thank everyone who was involved in the stem cell treatments for myself and my husband.

From the young lady at the desk who graciously answered my message and forwarded them to the appropriate person, to Dr. Leslie Mesen who spent so much time explaining to us how it all works and answering all my questions, Dr. Silvia Sibaja who did the procedure, to the doctor that did the anesthesia, and everyone else that was involved behind the scenes.

Thank you all for bringing me my husband back. Most of you do not know how difficult it is for the caregiver when their spouse is afflicted with Alzheimer’s. I did not till I had to go through it and I do not wish it on anyone.

Thank you for getting rid of the pain in my knees and in my lower back. As a result I am now able to create greeting cards again, which is my passion.

I sincerely apologize for not being able to write this in Spanish, but hope someone can translate for those unable to read it for themselves.
