Today I am thankful for the Lord who gave me life, for my family and friends, and for doctors like you, willing to try to solve this mysterious disease.

Dr Sclafani, thank you for your tireless efforts to get off the sidelines. I can't wait to see what your work yields in 2011.

Wonderful news Dr.S.... Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

And Happy Thanksgiving to all the TIMS members, I am thankful and grateful to be part of this group (I don't have MS but my 14 year old son does) where there is so much compassion.
Best Wishes To All

I am also thankful for the Lord who gave me life, missing my son terribly who is serving in Afghanistan and grateful for Dr Sclafani's tireless effort and thrilled with the news he will be at it again in the very near future!

What a great message to read this morning! I am so thankful for the HOPE that there is a brighter future for my daughter and so many others. Thanks for all you've done, and continue to do in this CCSVI journey, Dr. S! It has been an exciting year, and I look forward to seeing how this coming year unfolds. I said it before, and I'll say it again-- "future's so bright, I gotta wear shades..." 8)

You are the most selfless, compasionate, caring human being John and I have had the pleasure to know. You have made a difference in our lives in more ways than you can possibly know!

John and I would like to thank you, but thank you seems so inadequate on this day of Thanksgiving. John could not have said it better "Today is a special day for me and my family, we have hope and strength once again".

Dr. Sclafani, you are a wonderful person who has tirelessly fought for the MS community when MOST would not. Please know that you continue to be in my prayers nightly and we will always be GRATEFUL for what you have given us back~~~HOPE!

God Bless you and your family on this wonderful day!

Just saw this announcement after posting on Michelle's thread, but had to say that Megan's Mom hit the nail on the head. What Thanksgiving news!

You definitely have a flair for timing, Dr. S!! :D :D :D

I am so happy for you and for all of us !! I had the great fortune to be treated by Dr Haskal on August 17. But before I made the final decision my husband privately messaged you, Dr Sclafani, about this wonderful doctor and that made a huge difference in my decision to drive from Missouri to Baltimore for treatment. My results are outstanding, so thank you for your help along the way.
