'I am Cured,' Says Woman with Aggressive Form of MS After Receiving HSCT in Canada - Multiple Sclerosis News Today (blog)Friday, August 12, 2016
Freedman and Dr. Harold Atkins.
My life is spectacularly different than before my transplant… I, at my worst, was 9.5 in our EDSS scale of disability. I was sent home to my small town hospital, in Blairmore, AB [Alberta], after the city had done all they were able, to die… I was told it was now ‘between you and God,’ is this what I wanted to hear? Well, at that point ‘kind of so!’ I had been a quadriplegic already with no movement but my head, was this my life until God chose to take me? If it was going to be, death was a great option.
Things instead took an amazing turn and here I am nearing on five years’ post-transplant. I’m alive and well. ‘Well,’ of course, from my perspective — I’m not dead… I have the ability to roll myself in bed, I can feed myself and walk aided, probably always will, but I’m nowhere near where I was before.
My disease has been HALTED!!! I do use the “C word” all the time… I actually named one of my blogs the “C WORD” stands for “Cured not cancer.” I’m so grateful for all those who came before me and excited beyond measure for all those to follow…
That was written by Fiona Fifield, who I contacted at her home outside Calgary, Canada.
I asked her to tell me her story, and how she became one of the few people to have received HSCT in Canada outside the trial conducted by Dr. Mark Freedman and Dr. Harold Adkins, of The Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa. (Watch Multiple Sclerosis News Today‘s exclusive interview with Dr. Mark Freedman at this year’s CMSC.)
She said: “It was in January 2010, when I was working as a long-haul truck driver, that I realized that I could not work anymore.
“One day in April 2011,...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
