Multiple Sclerosis Patient Helped By His Own Adult Stem Cells
George Trajkovski, a multiple sclerosis patient who received his own adult stem cells is dancing again thanks to the benefits received from the treatment. George started out seeking therapy by contacting the Repair Stem Cell Institute who put him in contact with Dr. Fernandez Vina, a member of the Repair Stem Cell Institute and I'll let George's wife take it from here:
Dear Mr. Margolis,
Thank you, thank you, thank you! My name is Angelina Trajkovski, the wife of George Trajkovski, and I want to express my gratitude for making it possible for us to realize the dream of getting my husband better and on his way to recovery from Multiple Sclerosis. I don't think I can find words that will in any way describe what we feel this moment after having done the procedure this past Saturday. Many kids went trick or treating for Halloween, however, our 11 year old daughter, Tijana, got the treat of a lifetime, her father getting stem cells so he can play ball with her. Dr. Vina, his medical team and the staff at the clinic were phenomenal. Their compassion and humility, professionalism and expertise, made this experience something we have not seen before. From the moment we met them to the moment they left the hotel room after they checked on George for the last time, we felt confident in the choice we made. After two years of extensive research on stem cells, I came across your website and I have not looked back. Don Alvarez's blog about his mom finalized my decision to contact you and have Dr. Vina perform the procedure.
We are home now and George is feeling very good. We will keep you posted on his progress. We cannot forget Walter Trotter. His communication ability made the whole process easy and the answers to our questions came in no time. Thank you, Walter. Also, Mr. Gilberto Vasquez had everything ready for us. We could not have asked for a better stay during this time. The staff at the Sheraton Hotel was accommodating and helpful in assisting my husband who needed a wheelchair to get around.
For the past ten years, every doctor in the US told us that there is nothing they can do except keep on taking the medications each one of them favored (Beta-Seron, Rebif, Avonex, Copaxone). I come from Europe and always have had a different outlook, so I never stopped asking about new procedures and stem cells. When I realized that in the United States the pharmaceutical and insurance companies write the answers for the doctors to give to their patients, I started my own mission to find a cure or something very close to it somewhere in the world to help my husband. I hope that one day other patients will understand adult stem cells and the potential they have to help. Both my husband and I have made it our obligation to give other people the information and hope they make the right choice like we did.
Thank you again for your outstanding work,
Angelina, George, and Tijana Trajkovski
And later I received a very special New Year's gift in the form of another email from the Trajkovskis:
January 1, 2010
Dearest Mr. Margolis,
George, Tijana and I want to wish you and your family a Happy New Year! May your days this year and always be filled with joy, health, love, happiness and unlimited success.
What can I say? I got my first dance in three years with George on New Year's Eve. Thank you.
As Dr. Vina said, we should start seeing progress in 30 to 45 days. Well, on the 30th day, George got up and walked 15 steps without his walker. Our daughter made him walk back to his chair because she could not believe what she was seeing.
It has been 60 days since his treatment in El Salvador and he is showing significant progress. He is walking without a walker around the house, the fatigue is completely gone, his speech and eyesight are perfectly normal. The pinky on his right hand is starting to work again; it had been suffering from atrophy. He dresses himself, bathes himself, and other daily activities such as daily hygiene, eating, writing, talking on the phone and so on. Climbing stairs is becoming easier with each therapy session. His physical and occupational therapists are amazed with his progress. All this was impossible before the treatment.
Thank you again,
