I did a search and turned up that Bridget Wehmeyer had posted here just once that I could find, as msfitz in Dr. Sclafani's thread. She was active elsewhere on the web, always in support of CCSVI. I do not believe she had been treated yet. Condolences to her family and loved ones.

Is this two different people? Rita and Bridget? In any case, my sympathy to family and friends.

Aren't Doctors supposed to do everything they can to help a patient live? Shouldn't an MS patient at that stage be able to be tested in the hospital in order for Doctors to all they can to preserve life? Isn't the possibility of the vascular connection enough at that point in the course of this disease for them to test and potentially treat? I am disgusted that we as MSers are constantly given minimal care because we have MS and things are just blamed on our disease!!! When did we become second class citizens?!

This is truly a tragedy, in every sense of the word. How can this be? There is a viable treatment now and still we are being denied. 45 is much too young to die, let alone because of this MonSter of a disease. How many more will be martyrs to the ignorance of the powers that be?!Enough is enough
R.I.P., Rita
My condolences to her family and all who loved her.
