Light in the Darkness


Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!

There is so much potential out there for the use of adult stem cells (NOT embryonic stem cells) in the medical field. Today, I am sharing a story of a young girl w/ brittle bone disease. Since treatment w/ adult stem cells taken from her father, this girl has grown 13 inches. Not only that, she's also received the Pontifical Hero Award in Rome last week. WOW!

Maria, great story! And she is doing so well. This is also good to show how adult stem cells can work. Very educational and inspiring at the same time!
