JOIN US– OCTOBER 14TH—at San Francisco Stem Cell Headquarters!
From Don C. Reed
Look at your calendar. Wednesday, October 14th, eleven in the morning—join us at the California stem cell agency headquarters.
As you know, Roman and I have been fighting for research funding for 21 years, ever since my son was paralyzed in a college football accident. You know the story: how paralyzed rats walked again after being injected with stem cells, and how that led to human clinical trials, the first in the world, continuing today.
But though “Roman’s Law” raised a total of about $102 million for research from both state and national sources, that was nothing compared to California’s tremendous $6 billion effort, Proposition 71.
I wrote my book, “STEM CELL BATTLES: Proposition 71 and Beyond: How Ordinary People Can Fight Back Against the Crushing Burden of Chronic Disease”, for two reasons: to show the stem cell program’s tremendous success, and to encourage more such funding. I won’t make a lot of money off it—there are almost no bookstores left—but this is the story of how California became the stem cell capitol of the world, and that is worth knowing.
Have you been to the California stem cell agency headquarters? If not, October 14th is just about your last chance, as we are relocating in November. It will be a great new home, I am sure, but San Francisco is where it all began.
Join us, won’t you? Oh, one more thing—the first 25 attendees will receive a FREE COPY. Please share this message with your lists. Let’s jam the place one last time!
