Sitting around waiting was stressful since I sent off my records in early August (I had booked the appointment for Dec. because I have a month off ...

E-mail from Dr. Haacke....

OK. Overwhelming the docs that want to help us is not going to work. Dr. Haacke understands this, but his e-mail accounts are full, his phone won't stop ringing and people have found out his private information to contact him. This is not good. Believe me, he understands the desperation, but we've got to do better.

Dr. Haacke wants to help establish a testing protocol for MS patients. He will not be able to treat ...

RV parking close to Stanford?

Hi all,
I’m one of the many who have their paper work in and are waiting for the call from Dr. Dake and then the next call from Darcey or Alex to schedule.

Media interest

It's all happening, perhaps.
Yesterday I emailed the fabulous w5 news report to lots of British news organisations and reporters. Today I was contacted by the BBC who had loads of questions for me about CCSVI and my imminent treatment.. It's about time CCSVI caused an avalanche of interest this side of the pond.
Fingers crossed.

2. Can a patient request the testing from their GP or do they require a specialist?

Anything happening in the Northeast US?

Hi, I'm a newbie here, the husband of a woman with a mild case of ms. We live in New Hampshire USA. Anyhow, this whole CCSVI issue has got us very excited, but I can't believe there is no action yet in the northeast even as far as testing. Does anyone have any leads on when things may start to happen up here? We are very tempted to just take the plunge and set up ...

Zamboni new publication?


Sorry to put up a new post, but I can't find the info needed in all the other posts:

In which magazine will P. Zamboni publish his results of the tracking of the liberation procedure tomorrow?

Need this to inform a journalist who might be interested.
