Tony Underhill was a successful, vibrant businessman, and then he was crippled by the disease scleroderma, the disease that turns you to stone. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Doctors tried to treat him, but then sent him home; his discharge papers used the term "unfortunate", and they only gave him 120 days to live. But his fianc´┐Ż Missy wouldn't let him give up. They found hope, a program run by Dr. Richard Burt at Northwestern University. Tony was treated with his own adult stem cells, and within days they began to notice improvement in his ability to move. Tony has his health back again, and is back running his construction business, thanks to life-saving adult stem cells. He says, "Anybody that would ask me about adult stem cell transplant, the first thing I would tell them is, this is the Future of Medicine. This is the Future." You can see Tony Underhill tell his story in a video, and see other success stories of patients treated with adult stem cells, at FRC's STEMCELLRESEARCHFACTS.ORG.
