It's a bummer to hear that Slavin has acted like that, as I was thinking of using his place for HSCT if it came to it...
HSCT is not a miracle and it does not help everyone. It most likely helps if you have active lesions, otherwise your chances are close to zero. It also costs a lot of money, over USD 100,000 at a reputable place. If you chose any of the stem cell options, talk to specialists from different places and do no rely only on these forums. I do not think that any person here in tims after reading some articles on the net became a stem cell specialist.
