Welcome to a New Year and hope everyone had a great holiday season. We are starting off this month with Pamela Gooch coming to share her experience about the recent stem cell treatment she went through and she will just be returning from her 6 month checkup. This might very well be the exciting news we are all hoping for to find the cure to MS.
