A dear friend of my mother's passed away last year from 'complications of MS'.
I was diagnosed in 2006 and she was a great comfort and mentor to me. We lost touch in recent years however, and unfortunately she passed away at just 68 years-old.
I am trying to understand what happened. Unfortunately, her friends and family do not seem to be knowledgeable about her condition and treatments. She had progressive MS, diagnosed in the late 1980's. Her disease began much like mine, with infrequent relapses of the sensory nature. Then when she entered her 40's, she began to lose motor control of her legs, and in later years her arms and torso. I know that 3-4 years prior to her passing she underwent several months of radiation treatment, bringing her immune system down to zero. Her heart became weak and she had to exit the study.
Two years prior to her passing she traveled to Costa Rica and underwent the Liberation Treatment. I know very little except that recovery was difficult and she saw no positive results. In the two years following, she caught several infections, the last of which her weakened heart could not keep up with, and she passed away in hospital. From what I know, she had no other major health problems.
Of course I don't have many details so one can only speculate. What was this radiation treatment? I believe it ultimately led to her death, and wish I knew what it was.
