Kitson - You confuse me when you say the US has trials that are potentially fatal, but you would advise against anyone going to Mexico or China or wherever because of the risks. If you would like to rustle up some donations or feel we should charge a membership fee for our forum, we can eliminate forum sponsorships and very possibly lose some members who don't have extra money to participate. We have forum expenses and the sponsors help us defray the costs. Also, if you aren't interested in any of the sponsors, then simply don't click on an icon. How much simpler could that be? I have looked at other medical sites and some forums and we are not alone in allowing sponsorships. I find the information useful and the links handy to be truthful. We have started this forum to help others by having stem cell discussions and members who have had treatment give their stories. You don't seem to believe that stem cells can help with your condition and yet others with MS are seeing improvements. I also feel a good mental attitude is a must no matter what kind of treatment you seek. No one is claiming cures on here. Most members are not doctors. We do not give medical advise. As Harv says, today's information on stem cells is going to seem very pre historic in only a few years. No one is downgrading the U.S. The general consensus that I see is that the U.S. is simply not up to being ready to give treatment to people and many cannot afford to wait. You have an attitude of defeat. I would be laying on the couch with some respiratory problem as usual if I felt like you do. Instead, this year I am full of energy and enjoying my life again. And heavens forbid, I went to Mexico for treatment.

The board is not updated ( leaves you open to hackers because of holes in secruity)
You have done nothing to customize the site
I see spammers signing up all the time, there is a simple way to prevent that.
You have no clue how to run a board.
yes this site does promote people going overseas to questionable clinics, you even host questions from people who workk ar these companies.
Discounts for members from this forum? Healthcare is like a blue light special?
