Although Obama promised to lift the 7-year ban on embryonic stem-cell research, it almost doesn't matter. Scientists have found a way to make stem cells from the skin cells of ALS patients. Click on the link above to read more.
Until 2004, I was an independent and active woman -- a former airline sales exec and then a high school educator. Then my body kept betraying me. I was finally diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease -- confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak.

The real scientific promise has never been in embryonic stem cells to begin with. I'm so happy that scientists are finding real advances elsewhere!
