Ivy, this is really interesting! I'm never sure what I would do in that situation if given the option of stem cell treatment because of the steps it implies and the death risk, but I think it's a step in the right direction and that it truly is amazing if it works. I'll have to look into this particular treatment more..really fascinating.

Which is exactly what I was talking about or, the risks that come along with that treatment in general. I would call what happens to your immune system in that treatment period pretty risky.
