Today everyone knows someone who either has or had cancer. In December of 2002, Carol Franz discovered her pain wasn't caused by the humidity in upstate New York. It was multiple myeloma-bone marrow cancer. Because she received two adult stem cell transplants to extend her life, Carol will tell you things only someone who has "walked the walk" can. Blending her sense of humor with an unshakeable faith in God, Carol relentlessly provides up-to-date information that just might save a life. Everyone should have the opportunity to learn of adult stem cell research. Carol had her health returned, but others may not due to lack of adult stem cell knowledge.
