"Lucky Man"

It is widely speculated that President Obama will sign a Bill tomorrow allowing a further research to be done on stem cells. Michael J Fox has been relentless in his efforts and campaigning in this area. It is research which may well be necessary to find a cure for chronic degenerative diseases. As he said in his book "Lucky Man." "If the potential of stem cell research is realized, it would mean an end to the suffering of millions of people-a rescue, a cure. But the potential benefits are not limited to Parkinson's. Stem cells could lead to breakthroughs in developing treatments and cures for almost any terminal or catastrophic disease you can think of." M.J. Fox, Lucky Man, Pub. Hyperion NY, p. 250

Karen and Arthrits Women's Support Group

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for continuing to visit my site. I hope you are feeling reasonable as you read this. I have not been feeling great and am trying my third biologic. I have hope again so that is a good thing. We all need support, I can finally confirm that the date for the next Karen and Arthritis Women's Support Group (KAAWS) is Wednesday April 15, 2009 at 6.45 p.m. The venue will be a casual restaurant in midtown Manhattan. I will post the exact location the week before we meet.
Until then keeping blogging or emailing me and think happy thoughts.
Karen :)
