If I weren't on Cymbalta for nerve pain in my legs I'd be crying for joy at your Thanksgiving message, Dr. Sclafani. :wink: Your announcement and gratitude list have totally overwhelmed me. Your humility and honesty and heart have endeared me to you forever.

And I give gratitude to you, and ALL of the Interventional Radiologists dedicating their careers to those of us with MS that need this Liberation so very badly.

God speed in your journey.
Best to all,

dr. sclafani, there is not much else that can be said that others haven't covered. it is great news!! everything you have done to get ccsvi out of the closet will forever be remembered by everyone. the time you have taken to be here for us is very rare and only a special person would do this.

you have went through a lot yourself with the irb's etc.

but, you are proof that it is hard to keep a good man down. THANK YOU!

Obviously words cannot even begin to say the ever lasting gratitude we have for you for never giving up the `fight` for all MS patients. You are truly dedicated to the cause of CCSVI. We in Canada and the U.S. and well lets not forget the rest of the world all join in to say `THANK YOU` Dr. Sclafani. We wish you the very best in 2011 in being able to finally do the CCSVI surgery again................

Dr. Sclafani: I'm so glad you'll be starting to treat pwMS in January. This feels like every holiday of the year celebrated by every religion all rolled up together (kinda mind blowing)! Best to you :)

Dr. Sclafani,

I am a little late in hearing your wonderful news. Your beautiful words and those of all the people that have congratulated you have sent the tears streaming down my face. What a gift you are to us all.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

way to make me cry, as I catch up on my TIMS reading after a week away.

Thank you for your beautiful sentiments that you so beautifully put into words.


always look on the bright side of life

Veins opened 10/15/10. RIJV still on the small side. Feeling much better.

Sometimes there are no words to express the emotions that things like this stir up. So glad that you're back to treating patients Dr. Sclafani. God bless!

The patron saint of Thanksgiving is Moses. I think you are the new patron saint of CCSVI, parting the obstacles and finding the way forward. :-)

I'm late, as always, but as we say in my family, blessings on the meal. This is the best grace we could have hoped for. :-)
