Myelin Repair Foundation Shares Optimism for CCSVI

Postby marcstck » Sat Dec 05, 2009 12:02 am

This was posted on the Myelin Repair Foundation's blog today, by Rusty Bromely, the gentleman I spent three hours talking to yesterday at a café here in New York. Mr. Bromely is a brilliant and gracious man, and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to thank him (and Hollie Schmidt from The Accelerated Cure Project) for taking the time to meet with me.

Was the timing of this MRF post a coincidence? Don't want to blow my own horn or anything...

Well done Marc! The more people that know about CCSVI the quicker it can be investigated:)

How are you doing these days? Any more news from NIH?

Excellent! I am glad that you had an opportunity to speak with those people and give them the information that you have picked up.

Toot that dude! I can almost guarantee if you speak like you write, that you were a big part of his understanding this like it really is.

Ditto on Lew's comment, Marc. I know your meeting had a specific affect. Also appreciate Rusty's mention of the FB page. Terrific job getting the information to this pro-active charitable foundation.

Great job, Marc! Glad you were able to speak with Rusty Bromley and to see that he posted something from the MRF. The MRF blog has had a few comments about CCSVI since summer, so it is nice to see that it is now getting recognition.

guess they blew your horn for you! :D

But seriously, what a great, down-to-earth attitude they have to sit down with someone like you who is actually dealing with MS and knows a hell of a lot about it, and get your take. That's awesome. I think they'll get some of my donation dollars this year...
