Change of location23 February 2016
For those of you who have been along for the journey with me since the beginning, i'm sure you're about as sick of the location updates as I am! Our first goal was Russia, then we accepted a placement in Israel because they could see me for treatment much sooner....then the Israel clinic ran into issues and had to postpone my treatment. SO, here we are with our 3rd and I REALLY hope, final location for treatment. I am starting my HSCT journey (which truly started about 2 years ago now) on March 28th 2016. The incredible, kind and compassionate team at Northwestern hospital in Chicago, Illinois have accepted me on compassionate grounds following the issue with Israel's treatments. I've never felt more confident with the treatment than I do being in Doctor Burt and his teams hands. Dr. Burt pioneered stem cell transplantation for MS patients more than 21 years ago and is an absolute master of his craft. Fingers crossed that everything goes to plan over the next month, but assuming it does, we're all set for a couple of months in the USA!
Thank you for keeping us up to date. We will be thinking of you Amy
