wisconsin project?

Postby Selmahope » Mon Jul 18, 2011 1:02 pm

Was there any public update on the outcome of the wisconsin project? I'm assuming it did not help if he went for CCSVI? or is he doing this in addition?

Friday 7/15 was the Patient Education Day of the CCSVI symposium. Montel entered after we started and sat quietly in the back of the room. I noticed him during Dr. Sclafani's presentation in the morning. I'm not sure how long he stayed but I didn't notice him after lunch.

www.montelms.org/TheFoundation
The Montel Williams MS Foundation was established to further the scientific study of MS in October 2000. The goals of The Montel Williams MS Foundation are to provide financial assistance to select organizations and institutions conducting the most current research, to raise national awareness about MS, and to educate the public.

Since its inception, the Foundation, with Montel Williams lending his time and talents to numerous fund-raising initiatives, has distributed more than $1.5 million to research entities that are studying MS.

Currently, 100% of the public’s donations go directly to funding research to find a cure for MS. We are committed to keeping administrative costs as low as possible to remain true to this mission.

The research centers the Foundation has made grants to are: Johns Hopkins, Yale, University of California at Irvine, University of California at San Francisco, Kennedy Krieger, Northwestern University, University of Rochester, Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Accelerated Cure Project, Research Foundation of SUNY, the Nancy Davis Center Without Walls in the United States, and Karolinska Institute and Uppsala University in Sweden. Grantees for 2008 include Accelerated Cure Project, Johns Hopkins and SUNY universities and Karolinksa Institute, which are also previous grantees, as indicated. New awardees are Epivax, the foundation’s first biotech company, University of Medicine & Dentistry NJ—New Jersey Medical School and the University of Virginia.

To donate to the Foundation, please make checks payable to The Montel Williams MS Foundation, 331 West 57 Street, PMB #420, New York, NY 10019. To make your donation online, click here.

If Montel is passionate for CCSVI, we should see some familiar names/universities as grantees in the future. I wonder who might be recipients, if the foundation chooses to direct donations to CCSVI research?

Montel Williams is on the Dr. OZ show as i'm writing this thread. Total topic
is about medical marijuana. NOTHING mentioned about CCSVI. Does anybody know if this is when Montel is supposed to talk about CCSVI? i thought he isn't supposed to be on the Dr OZ show until this fall talking about CCSVI. Or maybe this might be a repeat show on Dr OZ. Does anybody know??

edit: here is the link

The Dr. Oz show is on hiatus for the summer. New programming begins in the fall, including the CCSVI segment.

Montel was on Fox discussing the troops and, at 2:20 to 3:30, he had some things to say about CCSVI. He is excited but reserved. He has had some incredible results. It's controversial, it's not a cure for MS, but if you have maladies in the veins, these can be treated, and he had some severe maladies in his veins.

:D

Plus, he looks good! He's holding up. Go, Montel.....

He did a great job of building up the suspense for Dr. Oz.

This is a very nice news clip. For those short on time, the subject turns to MS about 2 minutes 18 sec into the clip. He makes the best short statement on CCSVI treatment and its relationship to MS that I've ever heard (or read for that matter).

He has a new fan. I don't watch TV, so know very little about him.

This is in addition, Selmahope. My understanding is that the wisconsin project has been working for people. The wisconsin project is all about plasticity and retraining the brain (through vibration through the tongue) so it would be complementary to CCSVI. Even if treating CCSVI stopped the whole MS cascade, there is still be recovery to do.
