Watch Tony’s story of triumph over his disease, and learn why Tony calls adult stem cells “the Future of Medicine”.
Tony Underhill was diagnosed with systemic scleroderma, a disease that gradually hardens the skin and other organs. Doctors attempted to treat Tony, then sent him home and gave him only a few months to live. But Tony wasn’t done. He was admitted to a clinical trial run by Dr. Richard Burt at Northwestern University. In that program, Tony’s own adult stem cells made the difference, getting him back on his feet and back to work.
