Heart disease is the #1 killer in the United States. Barry Brown knows what it's like to fight against heart disease. And he knows what it's like to win, with adult stem cells. A fitness instructor most of his adult life, he started noticing problems in 2007. Turns out, hed had a heart attack and suffered significant heart damage. In a clinical trial at the University of Miamis Miller School of Medicine, Barry got a dose of his own bone marrow adult stem cells as part of the treatment for his severe heart disease. Three years later, Barry ran and completed a half-marathon13 grueling miles to show he was back in fighting shape. His comeback amazed even his doctor. As Barry says, his own recovery and all the other stories out there are proof that adult stem cell research isnt a waste of money.
